What to See in Denver: The Botanic Gardens are a Feast for the Eyes

Spring has finally arrived after an unusually snowy April, and you may be looking for new and different things to see in Denver.  Well, there’s no better time to enjoy the Denver Botanic Gardens which are truly a feast for the eyes.  With 24 separate gardens within the York Street location, the Botanic Gardens showcases plants and landscaping styles from around the world.  Visit the Japanese garden, the South African Plaza or the Monet Pool for an international flavor.  Or check out the Rock Alpine Garden, Porter Plains and other spaces to get drought-resistant landscaping ideas you can use to turn your backyard into a Colorado xeriscape.

You don’t have to have a green thumb to put the Botanic Garden on your list of Denver Activities.  In addition to admiring the thousands of plant species, the gardens are a great place for a picnic, a concert, or a family outing.  They have traveling art exhibits including the current one showcasing 12 Colorado sculptors and a myriad of courses on topics as diverse as starting a vegetable garden to raising backyard chickens.
