Denver’s museum gardens offer a respite for kids

Gardeners can turn to museum and public gardens this summer to get a fix of color, bloom and passionate creativity that they didn’t have to sweat for.

Technically, the Denver Botanic Gardens, with two locations, at 1007 York St. in Denver and 8500 W. Deer Creek Canyon Road in Littleton, ranks as a museum. It’s the big kahuna of Colorado public gardens, but it’s not the only museum garden in town. Many area museums have splendid gardens on their grounds or nearby.
