    Experience the great outdoors at Denver Botanic Gardens. Sprawling over three acres (nine hectares), this natural oasis is replete with several themed gardens. Stroll along bonsais at the Japanese Garden, or enjoy a fairytale-like experience with Winnie the Pooh and friends at the Storybook Gardens. Xeriscape Demo Garden is great to gather tips on home gardening and horticulture, while the Rock Alpine Garden showcases a unique topography. Take a guided tour and marvel at the verdant landscape dotted with exotic flora, lawns, waterfalls and ponds. In addition, these gardens offer several botanical exhibitions, illustrations and workshops that are both fun and interesting.... less

The show is annual and although small is very good. They have a large room with sale items and then the judging room with all the show cactus. What fun.We then moved on and visited the indoor exhibits of the gardens and the outdoors to the degree that some things are blowing and showing. The conservator is fabulous. The more time you spend looking the more you will see. Lots to see if you take the time. We also visited the small cactus house. Although small and the bed needs a bit of cleanup they really do have a wide variety. They had carefully labeled each unique plant and then have a printed listing with the name to view. Great resource. Was a nice day to walk around out side. Although just a bit early for much to be out you can see how fabulous it will be in a month. We hope to be back in August for the water plant exhibit and to see more outside.They have a nice cafe for a break with a small selection of treats. There is also another food cafe open in the warmer weather. Also great free parking in their covered garage across the street.... less

It's a beautifully kept, fascinating place with various types of gardens, fantastic flowers, tucked-away corners with benches, reflection pools, fountains, ponds, and a jaw-dropping tropical greenhouse. There are regular sculpture and art exhibits, concerts, a couple of great little restaurants, some great permanent exhibits. There is a children's garden that is fun for kids under 10, the gift shop has really nice things, and the annual plan sales are great.... less
