This is an easy family outing. There is a beautiful childrens garden for the younger set with interactive pieces. The asian garden is calming and we love the koi located there. The butterfly house is always a gem too!

There are always seasonal plants blooming so it is never dull and always beautiful. The children's area is great. They are always updating so it is never just the same old thing. I like to go several times a year. My granddaughter loves flowers and I like to take her at different times to see the various blooming flowers and... More

The Botanica: Wichita Gardens is a wonderful place to spend a morning. The grounds are always well kept and the staff is very knowledgeable about what is growing in their gardens. We've visited many times and they have something for everyone. The Childrens gardens in full of whimsy and magic for the younger generation, but a wonderful walk for the... More

Botanical was open but preparing for an event. Gift shop & restaurant were closed and we couldn't locate a printed guides. Granted there was no charge but this did distract from our visit. Still, gardens were gorgeous.

This is a beautiful garden my kids and I really enjoyed. The butterfly garden is very neat as well as the kids area. We all enjoyed ourselves! Very peaceful.

We love to see seasonal variations, so walk through every 2-3 weeks if possible. Tuesday's on the Terrace is great! Many kids activities. Suggest a membership or "grandparents" type SEED membership. One can go for a short time or soak it in.

We ambled along the garden paths for about 2 hours, taking breaks at several of the benches. I was impressed that nearly all the plants had ID tags! The variety of areas is amazing. All are so well maintained. I loved the children's garden and the learning opportunities it provided for kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon there. Many thanks... More

I've been to Botanica with friends and family for special events, or just to look at the beautiful landscape. This is a great place to visit for all ages in all seasons. The Illuminations exhibit in December is a fun outing. The gardens always look beautiful and if you have young ones with you they will have fun in the... More

Visited in mid-day and we were not disappointed. The size of the Garden was neat and the variety of flowers, plants, and trees was notable. On a sunny day this is must visit.
