We visited Denver botanical gardens for Mother's Day with my husbands family. The older women enjoyed it but currently there weren't very many things to look at. I would go for a picnic on the lawn or walking and talking because you run out of things to do after an hour or so.

What a beautiful place to visit when you're in the mile-high city. While not as big as some botanic gardens, it was very walkable in a few hours. There are different eco systems (tropical and desert) and a wonderful variety of flowers and plants on display. The Calder Exhibit was showing and it was a pleasure to enjoy his art... More

Although the Denver Botanical Gardens central location encompasses only 23 acres, as part of Cheesman Park and along with its other locations, the Denver Botanical Gardens offers a quiet and relaxing spot away from Denver's hustle and bustle. The Denver Botanical Gardens offers three different locations and experiences. The central or main location is located in Cheesman Park (more on... More
