  • The gardens are beautiful, the facility is first class and the whole thing is well maintained. Worth going to again and again as the seasons change, and for the special events.

  • Refund our reservation money due to storm. We live 1-2 hours away and the very cold, snowed, windy storm was to arrive when we were scheduled to be at the Botanic Gardens.

  • Denver Botanic Gardens is one of the most beautiful gardens I have been to! The gardens are stunning, unique and very well maintained throughout the year. The staff and volunteers are extremely kind and helpful. They also have delicious food and drinks that you can enjoy inside the garden. I also highly recommend the Halloween and Holiday light shows they have in the fall and winter. A lovely place to visit anytime of year!
  • Such a beautiful, peaceful place to stroll around! We came here around 10:30am and it was already bustling. There's plenty of free parking and if you bought a ticket online, you can skip the ticket booth. We enjoyed seeing the different flowers, the Japanese pavilion and the bonsai trees. Absolutely a gem of a place and you can really feel the love and care poured into these gardens. Highly recommend a visit!
