Experience a Sense of Nature in Wichita's Botanica

Botanica was opened to the public in May 1987 to generate enthusiasm for horticulture and enlighten people through educational, artistic, and cultural experiences. Covering 18 acres with stunning gardenscaping, Botanica features more than 4,000 species of plants both native and new to the region. The gardens are designed to emphasize collections in display settings that showcase plants particularly well-suited to southcentral Kansas.

The gardens are open year-’round for repeat visits and new surprises each season. With ever-changing scenery and special events to entertain and amuse, visitors to Botanica are endlessly delighted.
