For Visitors and Neighbors

On several occasions, Denver Botanic Gardens has an early closure to host a Gardens special event, or for maintenance.

Denver Botanic Gardens Early Closings

Parking Permit Required* Oct. 3 - Nov. 30, 5-9 p.m.
PARKING: The parking structure located across from the Gardens’ main entrance offers free but limited parking spaces. If our parking lot is full, free parking is often available in Congress Park, accessed from Josephine St. near 9th Ave. PLEASE NOTE: During Chihuly Nights, street parking will be restricted in many areas around the Gardens. Pay attention to city parking signs. Denver Botanic Gardens is not responsible for parking tickets. Arrive with plenty of time to find parking. We encourage carpooling and public transportation.
