One of my favorite KC places

A small public garden - unique enough to spend time there, small enough to go through quickly. Don't miss the greenhouse cat.

My wife and I actually stopped there in August while on a Segway tour with KC Segway Tours. It is a rather small but quaint, charming and beautiful little garden with a fountain and a water piece in the middle. It was chockfull of flowers and plants, very well kept (dare I say manicured) and a delight to walk through.... More

A great little garden close to Country Club Plaza and the Art Museum. Beautiful flowers and sculptures in the fountain. It was a nice place to site down and relax for a bit as I was exploring the area.

I randomly walk to the Garden here sometimes and it is always so quiet and peaceful! You can easily walk here from the Plaza, or nearby museums. It is small, but gorgeous and relaxing. There are always people here reading and enjoying the flowers and plants. There are parking lots near by, so it can easily be accessed by vehicle.... More

Other than the unique fountains, the Ewing and Muriel Kauffman Memorial Garden is the perfect thing to do after lunch or dinner or when you have an extra hour to kill. This is a small garden, but it provides lovely spaces to sit and talk or read, and throughout the year, the garden reflects the plants of those season. Inside,... More

This is a wonderful memorial garden for Ewing and Muriel Kaufman (former owner of the KC Royals). There is an arbortoruem and a large outside garden as well. It is well maintained, plants changed seasonally throughout the year.

A beautiful quiet garden in the heart of the city, also the final resting place for Ewing and Muriel Kauffman, the original owners of the Royals and two of KC's greatest philanthropists. Open from dawn to dusk, it's a great break in the day if you are driving by.

You would have think of the Missouri side of Kansas City being completely urban, however, places like this become beautiful retreats in the middle of it all. This is a difficult place to describe. While not being a botanical garden the flora thrive year round in this grand space. It's difficult not to become instantly tranquil with a butterfly there... More

This garden is a part of Powell Gardens and refreshed regularly during the seasons and beautiful all year round. Love to visit here and sit and listen to the birds. Get ideas for our garden and just stroll. And it is free!
