We were here in March, when the flowers hadn't quite bloomed yet. It seemed like they were doing a renovation because there was some construction going on, but the walks through the gardens were still beautiful and calming.

I'm an amateur gardener, a member of the American Horticultural Society, and a local of River Farms in Mt Vernon, VA. This is a great garden. My wife and I spent 4 hours here. Many micro-gardens inside. Lots of good ideas. They gave a good discount at the shop for my AHS membership. We took Uber to get there, but... More

I would highly recommend the gardens. If you want to feel like you're getting away to some tropical island, having island fever, or just need a peaceful day off, HIT THIS PLACE UP!

For every person in Colorado or visiting from another state I suggest you stop in and visit the botanical gardens no matter what time of year it is because it is an outstanding location. The effort and the architectural designs of gardening and choices of beautiful array of flowers and plants are unbelievable. During the summer they have outdoor concerts... More

I only went here for an alumni function, it is not a place I would deliberately visit on my own. That being said, it was a nice quiet getaway from the city, and the gardens had a lot to offer.

The themes are diverse and each and every inch of the park well thought out. We were fortunate that the tulips, lilacs, and peoples were in full... More
