It was a great experience, but several school groups were there so it wasn't very peaceful. I'm spoiled by the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, so there wasn't as much calmness as I'd like.

I had some time to kill on a beautiful early spring day. It was fun to see the hardscape and imagine how gorgeous it will be when everything is blooming. Parking is convenient and free.

Really loved the varied gardens that were laid out in a very informal, yet structured presentation. Beautiful even in March! Inside and outside gardens all had special characteristics that were lovely and relaxing to go through. Also was great to meander through on a warm, sunny spring day a few days before the snow was scheduled to return to Denver!

Although I visited about 6 weeks too early, I still enjoyed meandering around these lovely gardens.I found visiting gardens from all different parts of the world quite educational and enjoyable. I look forward to returning when all is in bloom

Lovely collection of Dia de Los Muertos inspired altars, and pumpkin carving exhibitions. The lights were magnificent.

The Botanic Gardens are a wonderful oasis in the city. It is so nice to spend an hour or two walking around admiring the landscapes, lounge on a bench, or have a picnic. Great place to recharge in Denver.

The holiday lights display at the Gardens is beautiful! Definitely worth braving the cold to walk around and see all the lights. You can buy hot chocolate, etc from outside stands or in the little food court. The main attraction is the interactive light show that responds to sound- so cool!

Just the right size. Bring a lunch or purchase one in the outdoor cafe. The various gardens are all beautiful. My favorite is the Japanese garden. Every season is different. This is a lovely oasis in the middle of the city.

This was an awesome Christmas time visit. The whole garden was lit up with various displays. The most unique one was a musically interactive lawn where you can play drums and jingle bells to influence the lights. Hot chocolate was way overpriced.
