Note that if there is an event (think weddings), some parts of the garden will not be accessible so plan accordingly if intention is to see everything. Can be seen in 1.5 to 2 hours but longer if you plan to linger. Helpful? Thank ARTJPL Report

The Denver Botanic Gardens, along with nearby Cheesman Park and Congress Park, sit atop what used to be Mount Prospect cemetery. Although the majority of bodies were removed in 1893, the interred continued to be removed as late as the 1950s. As recently as 2010, graves were uncovered during renovation of the park’s irrigation and sprinkler systems.

We had planned to spend a couple of hours here but spent the better part of the day. Every area was so artfully developed it felt like we entered several different oasis.

I joined the Botanic Gardens when I moved here last year and I will be renewing my membership. The gardens have a lot of events throughout the year. The conservatory, greenhouse, and outdoors gardens are incredible.

It's really very cool, especially in the summer. There are some great activities for kids, especially preschool aged kids. Helpful? Thank Beckibecka Report

The world’s first Xeriscape Demonstration Garden was created at the Gardens in 1986, and 2 years later its name was changed to Dryland Mesa. It was based on the “7 Principles” of Xeriscape, and includes drought-tolerant plants from the arid West and Mediterranean areas.

If you need more action in your activities it shouldn't be your first stop. There was also a bit of construction happening while we were there. Helpful? Thank MZhitnitsky Report
