    We went in the dead of winter and still had a lovely time. The ponds and water ways are beautiful. The orchid and tropical rooms were amazing.

    Everything is so beautiful and long as you can find parking. They have a parking garage but it's always packed.

    A must see when you're in Denver! Bring yourself some snacks to have while you're walking and DO NOT buy anything from that gift shop (you can get the exact same things outside!). I loved the place.

    Older people need to bring some transportation (wheel chair or scooter) as there is so much to see it’s hard to walk the full distance.

    A DBG membership pays for itself in 5 visits. Do yourself a favor and become a member. That way, you won't have to pay if you just want to come to the gardens for a walk or to work (free WIFI).

    Just inside the entrance, outside and down stairs on the east side of the main building is the five senses garden. The highlight are the plants that curl up in response to being touched.

    Try get here early for a concert because its difficult to find parking and the events get over sold so you need to be early to find a good spot to sit.
