Explore Denver: Chatfield Farms

Where can you have fun, be outdoors, and pay only $5 for a whole carload of family or friends without leaving the area? Chatfield Farms, opens a new window!

This piece of botanical paradise, part of the Denver Botanic Gardens, is a great way to learn about Colorado. Work out your wiggles at the children's playground, or head out for a hike on one of their many trails.

Meet horses, cows and other farm animals at the Hildebrand Ranch. Our favorite is always the chicken house. They're usually up to some silly antics! When you're tired, you can take a rest on the porch swing of the ranch house.

For seasonal attractions, check out the butterfly house (separate admission required) and bring your children face to face with native Colorado butterflies. Visit during the fall months for their corn maze and pumpkin festival.
