Came here to explore it during a free day admission. It took 40 minutes to got here and didn't understand what the point of this area is. There is not anything close to a botanic garden. Next time we'll try the Botanic Garden in Denver at York St.

Set beside Chatfield State park, these gardens are both beautiful and relaxing. Hay rides, corn mazes, old farm houses and cottages, and even a petting zoo. You can rent out areas for birthdays and weddings too!

It was a lovely morning when we visits this attraction in Littleton. We toured the grounds, planted with mostly local varieties and then visited the new butterfly enclosure. A knowledgeable guide took us around. The butterflies were just warming up and starting to move from plant to plant. It is freshly planted and quite attractive. When it fills in, it... More

Very well done display of lights. A pleasant walk through the gardens with almost every tree wrapped in a plethora of lights of all colors, sizes. Interactive areas for youngsters and adults, warming hut available along the walk. Nice family holiday activity.

It was a cold night, but that wasn't about to stop the fun. It was so beautiful. They had a fire pit set up and they were also selling hot cocoa and candy. They also have a warming hut, which is also,where the kids can do a craft. We also took a hayride. Lots of fun!

I don't have kids, but the Botanic Gardens at Chatfield kind of makes me wish I did. We visited during the pumpkin festival, which involves live music, kids' games, food trucks, and pumpkin picking. The grounds of the gardens are quite nice, with views of mountains all around. There is a small farm area with goats and ponies, nice walking... More

The Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield does not have much to offer through most of the year, but from late-September until the end of October it offers one of the best Corn Mazes in the metro area. The price is high ($10 per adult), but in line with most other mazes in the area. Hints are placed throughout the maze... More

We hosted a memorial service in the old school house at the Chatfield Botanic Gardens for my mother in law who recently passed. The staff was very helpful from booking to set up. The area is gorgeous and well maintained. With lots of separate gardens and walking paths to explore. They also host concerts in the outside amphitheater area during... More

We've been to numerous botanical gardens including the main Denver location which we liked very much. The gardens were small in size and few in number. Maybe we picked a bad time, but it certainly was not worth the trip.

This is a wonderful place to visit any time of the year. We have taken out of town friends here at Christmas time and had "Date night" picnics here as well. Our grandchildren ( boys, age 6 and 2) even love it here! Check the website for special events and sales; they have a great plant sale yearly that is... More
