Looking for a little peace and quiet from the sounds of the city? The 23-acre urban oasis that is the hip, wi-fi equipped Denver Botanic Gardens at York Street is a great place to think, write, read, and enjoy spectacular plants, flowers, and shrubs from all over the world.
Despite the mile high climate, altitude and geography presenting unique challenges to the horticulturists, the Denver Botanic Gardens is one of the top-ranked gardens in the United States. There are innovative designs with drought tolerant plants that showcase native and adapted plants. Highlights include the city’s first publicly accessible green roof, where visitors can literally stand on top of the future of innovation in green energy.
Whether it’s roses or chrysanthemums that tickle your nose, the Denver Botanic Gardens has three sites and changing events and exhibits that keep people coming back through the seasons.
