Free of charge!! This beautiful garden is tucked away near the Country Club Plaza with ample free parking. There is a climate controlled atrium with orchids and palms. In the winter it is a great escape to find lush greens. Recently, the wedding party I was in took some amazing pictures. There photogenic stone walls, arches, and a rectangular fountain... More

I always tell people that they should stop and take a 10 minute walk through the garden. It is a beautifully kept garden and I find many plant species that will grow in my garden as well. It is a little slice of heaven in the middle of the city.

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
