This is a wonderful gem off the beaten track in the City of Wichita. We spent an afternoon wandering the different gardens and had a wonderful time. Friendly staff and volunteers.

I love this place. Every part of this garden was amazing. Every themed garden set itself apart from the next it was a wonderful day spent exploring. Even the kids garden was fun to play around in. Definitely visit the tree house!

The botanical gardens in Wichita were a pleasant surprise. Easy to get to with GPS, not overly pricey, and very large with lots of variety. If you enjoy gardening or just like being outdoors, highly recommend stopping here
