Love this place. Even worth a visit in the winter months but really shines spring/summer. If you're a local, the annual pass is a great value. Well worth a visit if you're into Gardens.

We loved our visit to this botanical garden! The Orchid Show was absolutely amazing and the grounds of the facility were clean and filled with viewing treasures. We are so happy we made the stop!

Visited with 3 girlfriends on a cold winter day. The exhibits are impressive but small enough to visit other places in the gardens. We saw art (Whimsy), orchid display, tropical forest (inside), Japanese gardens (outside), rock gardens (outside), Colorado gardens (outside). After getting chilly we...More

Do yourself a favor and carve out a couple hours to visit the gardens at an off-peak time . You don't have to be into flowers or gardens, just able to appreciate nature and willing to slow down for a bit. Take a slow walk...More

Quiet. Gorgeous plants. Fun season events. Yummy cafe with good coffee. Easy to walk around. Back gate membership is worth it if you live nearby.
