Reviewed 12 March 2012

I love going to the Botanic Gardens in the spring and summer when everything is in bloom. They have a lot of different outdoor areas as well as a green house rain forrest exhibit

A great place to go during the holiday season. Great light displays and a nice walk make a perfect winter date night.

“Lovely Sanctuary in City”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Beautiful grounds, especially in Spring/Summer. Large greenhouse with exotic, tropical plants. During the holiday season the grounds are decorated with thousands of colored lights, which are especially beautiful on a snowy night. Bundle up and bring a thermos of hot chocolate to wander through the Wintery displays. Tip: Buy tickets ahead of time on-line to avoid long lines. In Summer live music is performed outdoors in a scenic, grassy amphitheater.

“Oasis in the middle of Denver”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

The Gardens have something for everyone. Quiet paths, inside areas and a fantastic children's garden and even concerts in the summer. Denver is very Lucky to have this wonderful oasis so close to downtown. For those who live in the suburbs south of the city they have a location near Chatfield State Park.
