My mother-in-law passed away unexpectedly this summer and as she was a member, donor and frequent visitor to the Gardens we asked if they had a place to hold a gathering to celebrate her life. They allowed us to use the All American Selections Garden...More

The gardens are beautiful, with many nooks and crannies to wander in. It is even better when they have famous artwork scattered throughout the gardens. One can get temporarily lost there, in a good way.

Check Debbie's deals. This alerted us of free days for the museums around Denver. Myself and my daughters got in completely free. Very pretty and quiet. We were able to walk around and get coffee while we enjoyed the beautiful views. I would definitely recommend...More

Beautiful Christmas lights display. The display was vast and covered a major portion of the gardens. It was beautifully done and presented. Different experiences down each path. Everything from standard tree lights to a large field and lights that "danced" to music. Great holiday experience.
