We go here often with kids and for Tuesday's on the Terrace. It's fun. Great for a walk. The kids love the children's garden and butterfly house. We enjoy the peace and quiet of the gardens and the stunning landscaping.

I love the live music on Tues nights. It's a great place to visit. If you live in the area, you should consider membership. There is something going on year round.

Christmas lights at Botanica are absolutely fabulous! The largest Christmas Village I've ever seen and it is a private collection hand painted by one family. The Christmas lights are a wonderful outing for all ages. Easy walking, places to sit and stroller friendly. Christmas music plays all throughout the gardens. We went early but I could see some benefit to... More

Well Wichita done it right with this one! Awesome gardens, great plantings. Easy strolls shady walks and beautiful spring bulbs. Great lunchtime lectures and evening music and food on the terrace. And don't miss the illuminations! Fun and beautiful for the whole family. You should really go. Really!

The flowers are beautiful and grounds are well maintained as usual, but the added Halloween theme attractions and activities were a lot of fun. We stayed for 2 or 3 hours and were never bored - the kids played and we hung out and... More

I also visited Botanica this spring, and revel in the seasonal contrasts. Far more than plantings and specialty garden areas, the design of pathways with close and far views makes this one of the most enjoyable gardens I've visited, here and in Europe. Added to that are the programs offered - my sisters and I attended a talk on chocolate... More

Took the grandkids to the Bootanica event which they really enjoyed. We spent several hours there with plenty of things to keep them busy. I have also been there during their Christmas luminary event, which it very enjoyable.

Our club went out for lunch and a tour. This was the time when the butterflies were stopping here before continuing on their journey to the South. The Tour was really interesting and a lot of beautiful flowers. We had a catered lunch along with all of the other festivities. They also have a souvenir shop with a lot of... More

I came here with my daughter and niece and they had a blast. The gardens are beautiful and kept up well, and the kids area is great. Kept the kids entertained for hours.
