“A Rare Treat”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

In addition to the wonderful and beautiful gardens be sure and check the schedule so you don't miss out on some of the wonderful programs. The music venues on the terrace offer a wide variety are great fun, the children's garden is fun not only for the children but the entire family. Be sure and bring your camera.

“Great”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you like looking at plants and flowers or just need a place to sit and enjoy a book or a place to take senior pictures, this is the place. Only $5.00 to get in. Can spend as long as you want there.

“Small but beautiful”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Very pretty place tucked away NW of the downtown area...really off of the beaten path. The flowers and shrubbery are very well maintained. The staff is very personable....great place for a wedding.

“Tip Toe Through The Tulips”

We spent the day walking along the paths and admiring all the beautiful plants and flowers. The Butterfly House is wonderful. They have a special children's garden.

“Fun for the whole family.”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Some reviews indicate that it is pricey to visit Botanica but this is simply not the case. While it does cost, the value far exceeds the price of admission. Our family consists of 4 small children and there was plenty to see and do and touch for each of us. The staff is so knowledgeable and friendly and seemed genuinely thrilled to see each guest. There is to much to see to list each in this review but our favorite was the children's exhibits. There is lots of room for kids to play and run around and they can learn at the same time. We bought a family membership for $55 which is a bargain compared to other places around Wichita and plan frequent visits in the future.
