“Construction again”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

It seems to be in a constant state of expansion. I was disappointed with the flower beds and with the pond. The idea of charging admission to an unfinished and sometimes fairly empty arboretum does not sit well

“Peace in the midst of chaos”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Just off the highway and a little hard to find is a fine place to rest, learn about plants or take a nice hike. It used to be free but even with the small fee now it is a wonderful place to go by yourself or with the kids. Go and enjoy!

“Very beautiful and peaceful.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I mainly go to the Overland Park Arboretum for shooting pictures of the landscape and flowers. But it is certainly a beautiful place to just walk around and take in the scenery and serenity of the place.

“Great place for a day trip with kids or grandkids”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is an excellent day trip just south of Overland Park. Easy to find with plenty of parking. There is no cost but donations are accepted and you will want to donate when you leave. There are miles of walking trails through all types of vegetation. Shade from the trees or open areas. This is definately kid friendly with childrens exhibits. The flowers are just amazing and a photographers dream. Go early in the morning while the dew still drips from the flowers. There are ponds with waterfalls. Take your lunch and eat at the tables provided. Great place to visit.
