“High Art”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Got to echo what others have said--the Chihuly exhibit is not to be missed. The combination of the glass mixed with lily ponds and glorious garden flowers creates numerous picture taking opportunities. Parking can be an issue but the side streets offer some relief.

“Wow!!!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

The Chihuly glass exhibit is in the Gardens now. Magnificent. The gardens are gorgeous, in the Conservatory and on the Perennial walk. The Food is so good in the cafe. We rode through a lovely old neighborhood of Denver to get the the Gardens. Congrats to the planners of this wonderful Botanic Gardens.

“Amazing and so Beautiful!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Definately worth a visit. The beauty goes on and on, just when you think youve seen it all, there is another section to admire. The sculptures are amazing too.

“Stop and smell the flowers”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Great spring time visit! The Chihuly exhibit was partially mounted when we visited, it looks to be a stunning complement to the natural beauty of this place.
Great diversity here! Come in the cool AM is my recommendation.

“Pleasant visit but temporary distractions”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

I definitely enjoyed the boettcher memorial tropical conservatory and the gates montane garden but almost anywhere else, there was visible construction going on and the elevators didn't work. Hopefully when it's all finished, it make for a more tranquil visit. In fact, as I reached the back of the gardens and the gates to Cheesmark park, it looked more quiet and inviting than the crowded gardens.
