To think that someone paid to create a space for everyone to enjoy for free is an unthinkable generosity. I am not a garden lover but this space is so peaceful and tranquil, to wander the gardens or just sit and contemplate the day. The garden displays are beautiful.

My preservation group had our bimonthly meeting here in May. I had never been, and was very impressed. This is a beautiful area. I have driven by here many times on my way to UMKC and never stopped, but now that I know, I hope to return throughout the year to see the changes! If you are not interested in... More

This is a lovely place to visit any time of year. It is conveniently located near the Country Club Plaza and Nelson-Atkins Art Museum. There is a nice parking lot and it does accommodate wheelchairs as we took a guest in one once. On our most recent visit, the plants were as lush as I have ever seen them and... More

We stopped at this memorial garden after visiting the W.W. I Museum. After being immersed in thoughts of war and human misery, the serenity and peacefulness of the garden was so uplifting. Everything about the garden is beautiful: the layout, plantings, gravesite niche, and greenhouse. A bonus was meeting the resident cat/greeter, Gracie. Just five minutes in this delightful place...

We are glad we had the chance to stop and see these really beautifully maintained gardens. Unfortunately, we caught it early July, and most of the colors were gone. Looks like the major colors in the blooms we missed by a week or so. Small, compact, and easy to get thru in an hour or 2 at the most. Nice... More

What a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the budding flowers and serene fountains. Located near the Country Club Plaza, this is a romantic date and a fantastic place to take beautiful pictures. Perfect for wedding, prom or homecoming pictures. It's free.

During a day out in KC decided to stop by the Muriel Kauffman Memorial Garden. I had been here before and it was a beautiful as I remembered. The flowers were still in bloom (had everything labeled) and everything was so well manicured and maintained. The fountains are wonderful and there are so many nooks to sit and just enjoy... More
