At the Gardens

School groups are welcome to visit the Gardens year-round. All school groups visiting the Gardens must make a reservation. To schedule a visit and/or program, please call 720-865-3580. Groups who show up without a reservation will not qualify for the school group rates and will be charged standard admission.

Please note that the Mordecai Children's Garden is designed for families and therefore school groups have limited access. School groups wishing to visit the Children's Garden will need to purchase a timed ticket for $2 in addition to their regular fee. Children's Garden visits are limited to Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Please call 720-865-3580 for more information or to reserve your space.
