Take a Relaxing Break

If in the Plaza area you should take a break from the hub bub and go near by to these quiet gardens. Very botanical as well as the final resting place of the benefactors.

I did a Segway tour, and we stopped here, an interesting piece of kc history I didn't know was there. I enjoyed checking it out.

Lovely and serene. Very well maintained. We were there in the early evening, and it was a perfect time to stroll the pathways. Certainly worth the time to stop. Not at all crowded.

I have the good fortune of working across the street from the Garden and it is truly a great place to relax during a lunch break. The facility is beautifully maintained.

Beautiful garden area with lovely fountains. We even saw a baby rabbit upon entering! Doesn't take a long time to walk through, but the flowers are really beautiful and the place is just very serene.

A brief walk though provided a relaxing space in a busy day. Very nice. Fun to watch the huge bees hard at work. Very manicured and well maintained.

You just can't get enough of this place. Peaceful, gorgeous, and a place to go when you need to get away! I am so pleased they are no longer allowing photo shoots inside the garden. It's very disruptive to the peacefulness and is disrespectful to the Kauffman's, who are interred in the gardens. I'm so glad that there will be... More

We loved walking through the gardens although it was overrun with people taking professional photos.

Great spot for amateur photography. Beautiful and well kept Gardens and Greenery. They do not allow professional photography allowed.
