Thus is the best kept secret in Overland Park. The grounds are spacious and manicured to perfection. The seasonal flowers and plants are a thrill to see. The walking trail is interesting, explorative, educational and a healthy stroll. Great snacks inside!!!

Just the place for the boys to run free, observe nature and satisfy their curiosity. Spent over 3 hours viewing outdoor exhibits, hiking the forest trails and walking the meadows and prairie. There is a lake and streams as well, plus the expected plants, trees...More

We have lived in KC for along time and never been here. It was a very neat place. We got a lot of waking in. We will be back next year when everything is in full bloom

The arboretum is centered around a big pond, with woods and open paths surrounding it. It's the perfect place to get outside and relax. Dogs are allowed but not on the main concrete walkways. Also they have some free admission days so check the website!

The arboretum is always beautiful. The walking trails are well-maintained, the trees and flowers are gorgeous, and there is so much to look at. I met a friend to walk a few miles last week on "free Tuesday" and we really enjoyed it.

We love stopping by here whenever we visit Overland Park. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and the trails are so nice to stroll around. The entrance fee is cheap and we've never been disappointed.

Yes it's as you come in, in the back of the nature center. I've never eaten there yet they do sell veggies and flowers to plant in your yard and the prices are extremely cheap compared to the garden stores.
