We love to take the kiddos and let them explore the gardens, play in the stream, roll down the grassy concert hill, etc. Also, the summer concerts are AMAZING! Our favorite kids "museum" is the Botanic Gardens.

We enjoy seeing the seasonal changes of the flowers. The staff are always so accommodating to anyone's needs. Just a joy to be able to visit. We highly recommend any day you can go and just smell the gardens.

Wow! These people know plants and how to get the best from them. This is definitely a hidden gem, well worth a few hours of your time on a regular basis. The summer concerts are great as well. This visit was an awesome Mother’s Day...More

Love botanical gardens, so this one was on our site-seeing list. Not only are the gardens beautiful, but we were impressed with the use of drought-resistant plantings found in multiple garden venues.

Our kids love the gardens. There is plenty to do and have fun. You can play, tour, run around, have breakfast or lunch, easy parking, and a gift shop. Everyone has a good time

Be sure to check what the current art exhibit is. Also go late afternoon to evening to enjoy dusk and beat the heat.

The Denver Botanic Gardens has come into its own in the past few decades. As a youngster I remember the gardens as having a very futuristic garden, the Tropical Conservatory. But there wasn't much else to capture your attention. Fast forward to today and the...More

Maybe I am spoiled. After seeing botanic garden on Hawaii Big Island I don't think I will find another which will take my breath away. Regardless, I love botanical gardens, so we decided to visit it. Garden is a home to over 30,000 plants, but...More

Honestly, I’m not all that into flowers but this park was really very nice. It changes from one “theme” to another as you walk through the 23 acres. It has a lot of walking paths, the majority of which are paved, but some are little...More
