This is by far the best attraction in Wichita. If visiting or if you live in the Wichita area please don't miss out.

It is not just the seasonal change that gardens go through but also the intentional expansion and diversification that greets visitors every time! Soon to be added are Japanese friendship garden and to the children's garden an antique wooden carousel! But don't need to wait! Tuesdays on terrace: evenings filled with drinks music and food. Wednesday noontime lectures with cities... More

My 2 year old and I visited, and it is a place that we both thoroughly enjoyed. There are things to do and see for people of all ages. The gardens, fountains, trails and facilities are beautiful and well kept. We spent a lot of time in the butterfly house and the children's garden and my little guy LOVED every... More

I went to these gardens on a weekday afternoon when few people were there, and it was great. I was definitely at peace there. Being alone in a butterfly pavilion is simply magical.

Botanica is a gem in Wichita's portfolio of things to do. The gardens are beautiful but what sets it apart is the Downing Children's Garden. My grandchildren (4 & 7) adore this area. They could spend the day here having fun. Must see the tree house, you walk across a bridge and come down inside the tree and exit his... More

It was just me and my wife, and it was just amazing. Very well taken care of, lots of different flowers and plants to view, and they had a kids section that totally made me jealous that I was not a kid again or that I did not have young children to bring here. They had a tree house, play... More

This place is great!! All the wonderful reviews really are true. Take your camera, LUNCH or be prepared with lots of snacks because the little ones are going to burn some calories running around the fun place! Check to see what kid's events they're having from 10-2 daily to bring extra play clothing off needed. If you have little ones,... More

Carol and I have visited these gardens in the past and when we were there this weekend, we went to visit it again. Wonderful flower gardens, woodland paths and a children's garden are highlights. So is the butterfly house.

We really enjoyed our visit. I have 2 year olds and they loved the butterfly house, gardens and the fountains throughout. The childrens area is wonderful. Please take a towel and change of clothes just incase they get wet or dirty. There is a music maze my girls loved. Keep your eyes open for cleaver little statues throughout. !!!! Also... More
