Right in the heart of downtown is this fantastic color garden. By color I mean there is always something in bloom most of the year around. It is small enough to see the entire thing in a couple of hours or get a good dose of flowers over lunch. And it is not for adults only, the kids will love... More

Irregardless of the season Botanica holds appeal for children and adults alike...The Children's Garden is always a good time for kids..my particular favorite is the view of the garden from the tree house in the Fall. ..Illuminations @Christmas. . &the tulips in Spring

Wichita has. Gem. The Botanical Gardens are a wonderful place for those in love to take a romantic walk amongst the roses & other flowers in bloom. There are all types & colors of roses as well as other flowers. Wichita Gardens has various classes & rooms for workshops. It's a great place to slow down & smell the roses!

My favorite part of Botanica is the music! They have wonderful opportunities to listen to great music throughout the year. Be sure to check out Tuesday's on the Terrace! Great music! Food! Atmosphere!

We went through last June and the gardens were beautiful as ever but we were overwhelmed by the Children's garden area. There are so many activities and things for them to explore. Taking the little ones through again this year.

This is by far one of my favorite places to visit in Kansas. It is hard to believe the sheer beauty and rich variety of color in the heart of the city. Something for people of all ages and abilities. The kids loved the children's area, while I felt at peace in the sensory garden.

I took my daughter out to see the beautiful flowers. Absolutely breathtaking. We had to plan a second trip to have a mini photo session.

Not really anybody's fault, but during my visit, numerous volunteers were digging up thousands of tulips as they had already bloomed, while many others were planting new items better suited to the season. But the whole place looked wonderful and I plan to return regularly as various flowers reach their peaks. Like myself, many photographers were there capturing images, and... More

This is a fun place to take a stroll through & enjoy the beautiful flowers. It is especially fun during the Spring season to see the daffodils & tulips.
