This has always been one of my favorite places to bring friends and family that are in town. What a magnificent place to visit! I could stay all day.

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.

A nice place to relax and have a stroll, the gardens are well kept and just waiting to be explored. Give it a go.

We had a group of about 12 of us meet at Botanica for a photography lesson (we hired our own photographer). When we arrived, the parking lot was FULL - they do a lunch and learn program and apparently this program was very popular. Our group finally found places to park and we enjoyed our time walking around and looking... More

Lots of early bloomers. It was a special "Tulips, Fairies, and Forts" day for the kids. Nice layout. Kids' garden was amazing (and we didn't even take our kids). Will be excited to see the change of plants into summer. Water features were really nice too.

Well worth the trip to this centrally located botanical garden in the museum district of Wichita. Make sure you bring your camera! Children will have plenty to see and do while you walk through the paths of the gardens.
