The botanical gardens were very nice and great way to spend an afternoon in Denver. I was disappointed that they weren’t larger but still a nice place to visit.

We may have visited during the wrong time of the year, there were sections that were completely empty or closed BUT the areas we did see were gorgeous.

Highly recommend buying the “glasses” for the tour if you go around Christmas. Go early and check out the gift shop.

Wonderful Spring day with tulips and hyacinth in full bloom. Loved it inside and out. We were visiting our son. We are from Ohio and still experiencing winter back home. What a great experience!

We had a wonderful visit as friends. The garden was fabulous. It is a little overpriced but still good.
