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.

Cute little garden with lots of Monarch butterflies. This memorial is at the base of the Nelson Adkins lawn, so if you are taking in the museum is an easy walk.
