We went for about an hour and it was really beautiful, but kind of overpriced for what it was. It's essentially just a nice stroll, not much else to do. Worth $5 maybe, but not $12 per adult...

Extensive gardens of countless variety, the most relaxing afternoon we could have asked for. The Walker Sculpture collection was a bonus. Free parking. Initially thought the admission was a little high, but was worth every penny--we sure have spent more for less! If we lived here we would have annual passes.

This place was absolutely gorgeous. So many different kinds of flowers and grasses. If you're a nature lover, you must go here! Parking in the garage was a bit of a nightmare, though.

We spent a few hours wandering the amazing gardens here. The crowds were minimal for a Sunday. The garden is well laid out with lots of little path ways cutting through here and there to different sections. The plants are diverse and beautiful. We loved the sensory and herb gardens the most. Very easy to get around for all ages.... More

Summer, fall, winter or spring the Denver Botanic Garden offers beauty and serenity. It's a great place for photography, contemplation, and learning. The Conservatory offers a wealth of tropical plants, orchids and waterfalls. Bring the family and visit over and over again.

We went to get out of the hospital for a while. Wish there were a greater variety of herbs. If you are with someone in a wheelchair, I don't recommend going here after it has rained and also if you are not strong. There are some really steep inclines which could be very difficult and dangerous for some.

Highly recommend you take an afternoon to visit the Denver Botanic Gardens. The lovely paths, the different themes, the beautiful sculptures and many benches, ponds, and water fountains will keep you intrigued and filled with enjoyment.

These were some crazy beautiful gardens!! Loved getting to walk around and dream about things we hope to plant at our home one day... Great for inspiration! The Kid's rooftop garden is SO cool! We went on our way back to the car, and I wish we would've gone earlier so we could've spent more time there. All of the... More
