Denver Botanic Gardens features North America’s largest collection of plants from cold temperature climates around the world. The park is located a short drive from downtown in the Cheeseman Park area of Denver.
There are actually three locations for the Denver Botanic Gardens:
- York Street
- Mt. Goliath
York Street is the main one, open year round with its lush indoor and outdoor gardens. The facility contains a conservatory, lots of theme gardens, and a sunken amphitheater, which hosts concerts throughout the Summer. During the month of December, the Gardens are open nightly and feature a winter wonderland glittering with lights.
For dining, Offshoots at the Gardens features breakfast and lunch items, like fresh pastries and soups. The Monet Deck Cafe features burgers, salads, and sandwiches.
The second, Chatfield, is near Chatfield State Park. This Littleton location features natural meadows and historic farm and homestead. And the last location, Mt. Goliath (on route to Mount Evans) is situated along hiking trails and features an a garden of alpine wildflowers.
