Denver Botanic Garden:
Denver, CO

The first day after we arrived in Denver I wanted to do something local while we got settled in. The Denver Botanic Garden seemed to be an excellent choice.

The 24 acre Denver Botanical Garden on York Street is also known as the Urban Oasis is a haven of floral beauty within Denver. There is nothing like walking through the beautifully designed gardens with its diversity and variety of colors and styles. There are lakes and streams that run through the gardens and add a refreshing touch.

When we visited this past August we first went to the indoor pavilion and then made our way through the gardens and pathways. There were so many “wow” spots scattered throughout the park. It was obvious to us how much thought and expertise went into planning and designing every aspect of the garden. We enjoyed seeing the various fountains and streams. We also walked through the less manicured but natural pathways near a lake. The gazebo near the lake was a great place to rest in the shade. During our visit masks and social distancing was required everywhere on the grounds, even outdoors, due to Covid19.
