I loved every minute I spent at the Botanic Gardens and can't wait to return. Lovely, varied gardens that are well maintained. Reasonable admission price. I didn't stop for lunch, but the long line suggested yummy food. I'll definitely be back as a member!

This is a Denver gem with so much to see. It's a reliably relaxing environment with beauty everywhere. I've been several times to meet up with friends, take a stroll, see concerts and recently for a wedding. It's always lovely!

Beautiful, lush grounds just minutes from downtown Denver! The gardens never feel crowded, even on a weekend. I enjoy a visit multiple times a year.

Not sure, but I don’t think so. I’ve never seen anyone picnicking there. They do not have grassy open spaces, no tables.
