Attended a lovely wedding here. The grounds were beautiful. It had a great area for a reception. I would highly recommend this to other couples getting married in the area.

You will not regret going to Botanica in Wichita. I have been going for years with my mother and they have a variety of flowers and landscaping throughout the gardens. It is worth the trip to the west-side of Wichita to visit.

A beautiful and serene garden in the middle of a city. There are many different habitats, from formal gardens, to a woodland glade, to aquatics and even xeriscaping! The butterfly garden is a special treat and great photo op with an attendant providing information. The very best part of the garden is the Downing Children's Garden..a whimiscial wonderland for children... More

My husband and I held our wedding ceremony in the Lotus Hall and our reception in the new Chinese Friendship Garden. The gardens are beautiful, and it is an excellent event space. I'd definitely recommend Botanica for either a daytime visit or any special event!

Beautiful!! I went to scout out a spot to consider taking senior photos. We went on the $3 Thursday and saved a few dollars! The grounds are beautiful and the butterfly house was a bonus!

So peaceful and serene, these gardens are amazing to visit. My daughter and I took my mother who is new to town, as we had some time to kill. The staff is warm and inviting, the gardens are magical. My 18 mo. old granddaughter LOVED it, too. This is a good place to visit and a definite asset for Wichita.

If you're an outdoors/nature person, this is a place in Wichita for you. There are plants and flowers from various parts of the world. This place is in a good location near downtown, and near other noteworthy museums in Wichita.
