The Botanica:The Wichita Gardens is a wonderful place to visit. There are a lot of different areas. One of my favorite areas was the Children's Garden. I wish I could have had my grandchildren with me. I think they would have loved it...great play area and beautiful plants.

I'm a member of Botanica, and I visit here at least once a week all summer. This botanica garden is just minutes away from downtown Wichita, and it's a great place to be with nature. A brand new Chinese Garden just opened this year. A few years ago, a fantastic children's garden opened -- it's full of fascinating things for... More

Girl time with my mom was a magical experience under our umbrellas in these lush gardens. The rainy gently tapped above our heads and wrapped us in cool mystery. We were treated to a personal tour of the new Chinese Gardens by director Marty Miller. There are so many gorgeous details to appreciate! Thank you Marty for enhancing our visit... More

The new Chinese garden is beautiful and relaxing. Enjoyed our visit. My husband loved the new gong and bonged it. So serene and peaceful except for the gong. LOL

I took my Mom here in April of 2015. I got to say, not at all what I thought it would be. Very little flowers around, not much to see or do. Even the map they gave us they asked that we bring it back when we were done!! The little kid area was probably the best thing at the... More

So disappointed with Botanica. They have chosen to ignore repeated phone calls about booking a wedding with them. If they were unable to accommodate the specifics of my wedding, I would understand, but simply ignoring me because I won't have 500 people (therefore spending thousands of dollars) is just rude. Needless to say, I will not be recommending anyone patron... More

This is a wonderful place to visit; especially if you have children. We come from a city with a botanical garden under a dome, and we were very impressed by how large this one is. There are a lot of interactive activities for children to do and play "with and on". The gardens are beautiful and landscaped well.

Awesome every time. Butterfly's, lush gardens, water lilies. Wonderful array of flowers. Quiet and peaceful walking paths. What's not to like.
