Reviewed March 18, 2013

I take my toddler and my in laws here. Everybody seems to like it. We love their Christmas lights display. Every few months they are changing it up so it is always different. Recommend going here!

“Better if in fall”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

It was a beautiful area but would be best for visit in the fall season or mid summer..
Also the greenhouse in it had some good plants which are usually found in tropical areas of south east asia or brazil. The area is slightly out of the city so you need to get a cab here..

“Simply breathtaking!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

The Denver Botanic Gardens is simply breathtaking! We went for Mother's Day 2012, as well as just 2 weeks later. Completely new plants blooming, and gorgeous presentation! Went again for Lights in December, and it was truly incredible. The # of lights everywhere was just amazing. They really have a great pride in Denver and in the incredible experience!

“Peace in the city”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

A jewel of Denver, with a new Childrens Garden, Tea gardens, a fascinating conservatory which is GREAT to visit on a snowy cold day, and many areas to roam or sit contemplatively from spring to late fall. We go every year during holidays and walk under the lights with our 3D glasses...a favorite family holiday tradition.

“OK in Winter”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We looked this place up online and saw that they had a huge greenhouse and were open during the winter. We went and it was pretty good. The greenhouse was pretty big but was tiny compared to the rest of the gardens. It was cool to be inside the greenhouse where it was 70 degrees or so and see the snow falling and covering everything just outside the window. I wish that they had a cheaper rate during the winter since you only get to see about a tenth of the gardens.
