Denver botanical garden is very beautiful and huge. There are many different sections inside, one can easily spend 3-4 hours here. The cafe inside the garden is pretty good as well. I visited in last summer and there were plenty of flowers then.

The garden's have always been one of my favorite places. Pack a lunch, cruise the grounds at your pace and enjoy nature at her finest.

Although I hesitated to pay the entrance fee, we were so impressed. We had planned to spend a couple of hours here but spent the better part of the day. Every area was so artfully developed it felt like we entered several different oasis. Monet's garden and the cafe by it were both a treasure.

Denver Botanic Gardens were beautiful, very nice smelling, and all around. The map was a little hard to navigate with, the food was very good(I got a BLT) and the location was easy to find. Went on a busy Saturday and parking was hard to find but luckily didn't take too long.

So, I really enjoy this garden and the koi pond, but the reason for my 4 star review is the children's area. It's really very cool, especially in the summer. There are some great activities for kids, especially preschool aged kids.

Beautiful & we'll maintained gardens. Enjoyed my morning here. When I was here not alot of flowers/plants outside were in bloom. Alot of water features were drained/being cleaned but nonetheless still a beautiful place.

Nice variety of gardens and with good weather, a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon in Denver. Note that if there is an event (think weddings), some parts of the garden will not be accessible so plan accordingly if intention is to see everything. Can be seen in 1.5 to 2 hours but longer if you plan to linger.

This is a beautiful botanic garden that is a must see in Denver! You can spend hours walking around. The ponds, the cacti, the bonsai...every display in this garden is exquisite.

The gardens are very pretty (loved the Japanese garden) but it really is just that, a pretty place that is tranquil. If you need more action in your activities it shouldn't be your first stop. There was also a bit of construction happening while we were there.
