I would go back if I were in Denver again. At this particular time, the entry fee was waived because of the plant sale. It was crowded, but did not take away from the beauty.

Really great place to spend an afternoon. So fun and a really great variety of things to see. We also enjoy the temp exhibit, keeps me coming back each time I come to Denver. Good place for kids as well.

Nice rest in the shadow, lots of places to sit down and enjoy, a peaceful place so close to downtown Denver. Plus for free parking close by. Probably best to visit in the spring/early summer when it's realy green.

So beautiful and relaxing. After visiting several more crowded destinations in Denver, we were happy that the gardens were more quiet and peaceful. No screaming kids! There are lots of shady places to sit and relax on a bench and take in the beauty of...More

I'm torn between rating this average or very good, but I can't help compare it to Chicago's and Dallas' botanical gardens so that pushed it down to average. In general the gardens were very clean and well kept and there were some beautiful aspects. The...More
