Congress Park’s Gem – Denver Botanic Gardens
1007 York Street Daily, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Although you might associate gardens with warm weather, the winter season comes to life in Congress Park thanks to the seasonal events at Denver Botanic Garden. Come be dazzled by the outdoor display of lights one night this holiday season at the Blossoms of Light.
December 5 – January 1, from 5:30 – 9 p.m.
This special event at Denver Botanic Gardens features an array of colorful lights, sparkling passages, and elegant displays that enhance the wintry beauty of the gardens. You don’t even have to endure the freezing cold for long stretches of time. The Orangery and Marnie’s Pavilion will be open to visitors during this nightly event.
It’s a festive holiday destination for nearby Congress Park neighborhood residents, complete with choral performances on select nights, warm drinks, and delicious treats.
Or if daytime exploration with the family is more your thing, you can enjoy one of several indoor exhibit halls. It’s a great way to help your kids learn more about the natural world. On a frigid day lose yourself in the tropical environment of Marnie’s Pavilion, which features indoor waterfalls and a gorgeous orchid display. Kids will love wandering among the unusual plants and climbing the Banyan Tree in Boettcher Tropical Conservatory to get a bird’s eye view of the jungle canopy.
Open since September 17, 2014, the Science Pyramid is a new exhibit at the Botanic Gardens. You can learn about Colorado ecosystems and how scientists use botany to understand our planet. Kids stay engaged with the interactive touch screens and viewing video displays as they discover how their backyard environment connects to the world at large.
This urban oasis is one of the many things that makes living in Congress Park such a great experience!
