Pretty Garden and Great Photography Spot

The gardens are very well kept, clean, and very pretty! Fun to take pictures at! The parking is a bit tricky but once that is figured out its fun to walk around at.

This place was just breath-taking....the flowers were so beautiful. All 3 of us were awed. Glad we found this place as we were walking the K-State campus.

Easy to get to on the KSU campus with a small parking lot attached (behind gardens), this makes for an easy visit. Cheap entrance fee/donation...nice displays and activities, even a bug gift shop. Takes about an hour to tour (if you take your time). Pair it up with a stroll thru the gardens, burgers at JP's (in the central building... More

K-State takes pride in keeping their garden facilities in top notch! It seems like they are always working to do upgrades to the gardens to make them even better for their guests!

The gardens are focused on plants that grow well on the western Kansas plains. Well marked, nice walking paths, interesting displays. Worth a visit!

I like to visit the University Gardens to get inspiration for designing special places in my own garden, to see the seasons change, and to escape to a special place. I love the iris collection and the beautiful vintage greenhouse.

It is a nice place to walk through any day. Always enjoy it. We have been several times in the past two years and always enjoy seeing what is new.

We have walked through the gardens many times, and had some wedding pictures taken there. They do a great job making sure it always looks great. Summer is a great time to see it though

I went to visit this with my sisters when they visited a while back and was thoroughly pleased with this little gem. I have lived here for 2 decades and had never been to it. A great way to spend a nice afternoon.
