Until recently the park was not much more than a glorified (but nice) nature walk through farm land, but every year there are new additions. More of the beds have been converted to a more formal botanic look (if you are going for the botanic gardens experience go to the Denver botanic gardens in Denver). Its a pretty place to... More

Yes this is a botanic garden with a variety of things to do. There's an area for gathering and hanging out, there's also a concert area, and a butterfly garden too. Nice area to spend an afternoon or evening, or attend an event.

We attended a live concert with Chris Isaak at the Chatfield Farms venue. Outdoor concerts are dodgy at best, but this venue offers a grand location; excellent sound; a visible stage; great parking; and helpful staff. The quality of the sound and the experience was wonderful - better than expected. Even with the risk of rain - it did spit... More

We went to check out the corn maze and food items they had going on last year. It was lackluster to say the least. Luckily they had some bounce castles and jumping things the kids could do, otherwise they would have been extra mad that we wasted our time there.

Was not impressed, paid extra for butterfly exhibit and it was a tiny little enclosure, not so many butterflies. Didn't see the lavender farm or working farm we'd read about. Pretty gardens and nice place to walk around but was expecting more.

We went for the lavender festival (free admission). There are many lavender plants, but they are small. A few vendors were selling dried lavender, oils and lotions. No one was selling lavender foods. Getting out of the parking lot was a zoo. For the farms themselves, the vegetable gardens were overrun with weeds. The animal part was small, a chicken... More

We stopped in today for the Lavender Festival and we were underwhelmed. My husband was glad that we had not paid because he did not feel it was worth admission. The kids area is very small. There were a limited number of animals and overall it really pales in comparison to the main Denver Botanic Gardens location which is absolutely... More

To give a botanic gardens 5 stars I expect lots of color. This was "some" color. It reminded me of houses with nice flower gardens. The children's area was pretty small with not a lot to do in it and the part I found most disappointing was there really wasn't any place for the parents to sit & keep an... More

This is a gem of a place to visit. The gardens are breathtaking! There is also a butterfly house for children of all ages. They have a children's play area, a working farm and plenty of walking trails through the gardens. They have activities all year long including a corn maze, pumpkin festival and a trail of lights through the... More

We attended a very large event here, the place was able to handle the crowds, we were able to see a lot of gardens they have here and a small stream that runs thru the property, they have a large variety of plant life here and are set up for events also with pavilions and buildings to go thru, and...
