This Beautiful 300-Acre Botanical Garden In Kansas Is A Sight To Be Seen
Like many Kansans, you probably don’t have a giant garden at home to tend and enjoy. During the warmer months, we have to travel elsewhere to get our flower fix. Now that it’s spring (or as spring as Kansas gets) we’re ready to explore gardens full of flowers and bubbling waterfalls, and this botanical garden is the perfect place to do just that.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
You’ll find the Overland Park Arboretum at 8909 W 179th St, Bucyrus, Kansas. For more information, check their Facebook page for more information and updates.
If you prefer your nature walks in Kansas’ natural state with wildflowers instead of gardens, you’ll love this state park that’s got all of that and more.
