"Making learning fun "

There are a ton of kids classes and programs they offer for kids of all ages. They tend to fill up quickly so register early. The gardens are great to spend the morning at with kids and there is a fun kids garden where little ones can run and jump in the water.

"Beautiful gardens"

I was there last June, which was a prime time to go.   We loved walking around and soaking it all in.   There is a kid focused area, but it's not huge.   I think it's well worth the trip.   Spending time outside in a beautiful setting like this is good for the soul.

"Not worth the trip"

I went here with my sons kindergarten class for a field trip.  They have a variety of different types of gardens including a chocolate garden!  They also have one that is like the town of Littleton, yet when we were there the kids were disappointed that it wasn't running.  There is lots of space, but I found it very confusing to get around, things were not easily marked.

"Breathtaking!"

Went to a wedding at the gardens this summer and it was just beautiful there! Everything was well kept and manicured and felt magical. The kids area is nothing to write home about (3rd floor of the parking garage across from the regular entrance). The variety of fauna was stunning. The building that house tropical plants made you feel like you were being whisked away to another world.

"beautiful"

We've visited the Botanic Gardens every so often for years.  It's always beautiful - a wide variety of gardens and styles.  My older kids don't enjoy it as much anymore (9 and 12) but my younger two still do (7 and 8) and it's been a nice place to go with out of town visitors as well.

"A Special Day at the Denver Botanic Gardens"

With a little planning, a picnic lunch and a good pair of shoes the Denver Botanic Gardens is a fun, relaxing and educational experience for the whole family. There are always events and activities both for members and non-members alike and it is a beautiful venue for events such as weddings, birthdays etc.

There are free days scattered throughout the year for Denver residents so make sure you take advantage of at least one to visit this spectacular garden and you're sure to find a favorite spot to sit for a picnic or just to enjoy the beauty around you.
