Flourish - From Our CEO

Denver Botanic Gardens Continues to Transform and Flourish

Denver Botanic Gardens has made great strides in the historic transformation of the Gardens. After exiting the greatly enhanced parking structure, visitors are now greeted with the impressive Bonfils-Stanton Visitor Center, home of the Shop at the Gardens. Once inside the Gardens, take note of the state-of-the-art Greenhouse Complex complete with an Orangery, located just next to Marnie's Pavilion. Additionally, Mordecai Children's Garden completed - kids are encouraged to explore, learn and grow. These structures not only add beauty to the Gardens, but also facilitate research, education and horticultural excellence.

Prior to the construction, Denver Botanic Gardens, Tryba Architects, Phipps Construction Company and our valued neighbors worked side-by-side to develop plans for the expansion and transformation of the Gardens.

Created with the Gardens’ core values – transformation, sustainability, diversity and relevance – as the platform, the design and new construction incorporate energy-saving strategies with environmental sustainability in every aspect of the project. 

The partnership between our neighbors, the architects, builders and everyone at Denver Botanic Gardens will ensure that the Gardens will be recognized as one of the premiere botanic gardens in the world, and continue to be one of Denver’s richest cultural jewels for generations to come.
