Popular with locals, Family-friendly

An oasis in the city with a rotating lineup of sculptures and art, the Denver Botanic Gardens is family-friendly nature fun located just outside of downtown. Highlights in the main garden area include a giant waterlily pond, a Japanese garden, and 18 arid gardens that showcase the plants of Colorado. Check out the Mordecai Children's Garden in the summer where kids can play in a stream, try on lady bug costumes, and build wooden forts. Even in the winter the Botanic Gardens is worth checking out; seasonal events like the holiday-themed Blossoms of Light transform the gravel paths into a sparkly winter wonderland.
