We had our wedding pictures taken here and I have been back since just to enjoy the garden. So peaceful and beautiful. Most other botanical gardens have an admission fee, but not here. Great for a lunch time walk.

In Winter you can enjoy the forms of the grasses and shrubbery, complemented by a central greenhouse filled with palms, bromeliads and other tropicals.

This garden is a wonderfully tranquil spot in the middle of a busy city setting. After spending an afternoon at the Nelson Atkins, this is a great spot to relax and reflect.

I've visited in February and in June, both visits were enjoyable. Take a walk through the park too, what a lovely area of Kansas City.

This is a wonderful place to walk through. I enjoy how the gardens are set up. There are places to sit and reflect as most of it is a memorial to these wonderful Kansas City people.

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.
