Love this garden any season. The flowers are changed out 4 times per year and the orchids in the indoor area are absolutely stunning. Little gem in the city

This walled in garden is small but amazing! Fountains, flowers and surprising plants at every turn, the highlight for us was a stunning collection of orchids in various sizes and colors. And all for free!! We'll be back!

Beautiful small botanical gardens. Worth a visit even in the winter. The indoor orchid display was wonderful. Great location near a park, art museums, and the Country Club Plaza. Best of all, it’s free!

A quiet and beautiful rest stop in KC. The gardens are lovely and free. Spend a few minutes or a few hours enjoying the tranquility and lushness of the flowers and foliage.

One of the most beautiful places in Kansas City. A full time staff maintains the gardens and they possess various levels of splendor. It is so quiet, peaceful, and relaxing.

I didn't see any posted hours. I was there in the late evening and didn't see any signs of it closing. It's possible they don't close the doors and you can get in at any time.
