I always enjoy the Gardens. Peace in the city. Whether for viewing and smelling the flowers or seeing an exhibit or a concert in the summer. Just go.

My first time here. So much to see. Parking is strange. Gardens are beautiful. People around to help point things out. Expensive restaurants. It was explained to me most of the food is grown in the garden. Nice way to spend some time.

Visited the gardens as the last stop on a month's tour of America. What a wonderful finish to a fantastic holiday

The gardens were just wonderful. The weather was great and it was just a very nice place to walk around for a few hours. We never seem to be able to see the whole garden before we have to go. Very much worth the price...More

This was our second visit to the Denver Botanic Gardens and we loved it as much as the first. It is so tranquil and a great place to just roam around and absorb the beauty of nature. I would highly recommend it.

Beautiful experience as nature mingles with the artistic...whether sculpture or concerts. Summer concerts in a unique setting and Christmas special effects that light up the season!

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