We always have fun when we visit Botanica! The gardens are just beautiful, plenty of shaded places to sit and stroll. My kids love the children's area, lots of fun hands on activities and exploring. Clean bathrooms, pack a lunch and spend a few hours! Worth it to buy a membership if you plan on going more than one time... More

I'm an amateur photographer and like to visit attractions like this - Botanica did not disappoint! The friendly lady at reception pointed out some highlights on the map, including a specific water lily from Australia that was in bloom - imagine knowing the individual plants in a 17-acre garden! The Children's Garden is enchanting, even for Grandpas like me. And... More

We love Botanica. Don't get there often enough. It has expanded so much over the last few years. Beautiful gardens, children's area, Chinese garden, wonderful wedding site, great lit Christmas display and more.

Botanica regularly offers delightful events year-round to the public which are affordable and set among its beautiful gardens. The winter event is very pretty, set with twinkling lights and great food. Nice, long walking paths meander through peaceful plantings. The little barn was the recent place for my daughter's baby shower, and Botanica provided everything we needed for a special... More

Anyone who has ever tried his or her hand at gardening in the South Central Plains can tell you of the difficulties of temperature extremes and droughts. The designers and implementers of the gardens at Botanica have risen to the challenge and mastered it beautifully. The older Shakespeare and rose gardens are maturing quite nicely, and the newer additions, such... More

My youngest son, 6, continues to live the butterfly house and children's garden which includes an amazing tree house. We can easily spend several hours there. Make sure you check out the new gardens they've added in the past year as well. Well worth the trip.

Botanica has Tuesdays on the Terrace through the summer and it's great. Saw the Cherokee Maidens and they were wonderful. Everyone had such a good time that night! This venue attracts great musicians.

This place is beautiful. It has a butterfly house and a place to feed fish. It's the perfect place to take a nice, relaxing walk
