Prepare to fall in love with this special garden in the middle of Kansas City and just east of the Country Club Plaza. Lush and diverse plant beds feature local and exotic botanicals, including some plant varieties not found elsewhere in the Midwest. Pruned foliage and flower plantings are framed by stone walls and artfully shaped around playful fountains and elegant pieces by bronze sculptor Tom Corbin. Botany students often visit the nationally-know garden to explore its distinctiveness, but the average visitor is equally entertained.
The Orangery is the major architectural feature on the garden lawn, offering a sheltered gathering place for visitors and a site for fragrant and seasonal plants.
No smoking, not pets please. Masks encouraged.
