There has been an ongoing upgrading of the Gardens and every spring/summer it is a beautiful place to visit. We take Prom pictures and regularly see newlyweds having pictures taken there also. Limestone buildings, fountains, benches, beautiful grass, and lots of flowers make for great picture backgrounds.

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.

While visiting Kansas State, we were told to visit this place. It was very beautiful and we really enjoyed it. It's a great place to walk around.

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! This is a great place to study, if you are looking for a quiet spot. It is also a popular destination for wedding photos and senior pictures! Be... More

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
