A Trip To Kansas’s Neverending Tulip Field Will Make Your Spring Complete
Have you ever wondered what it was like to view a sea of color, waving in the wind? Sitting near gorgeous flowers is a dream we don’t get to have all the time, but we’re happy to find this beautiful garden in Kansas that’s the neverending tulip field of your dreams. Stop and smell the tulips at this amazing garden in Kansas, won’t you?
Welcome to Tulip Time in Topeka, Kansas.
It's a wonderful 3-day celebration of plenty of tulips in every color, but you can also visit the tulips at the three gardens after the event.
There are over 120,000 tulips at this celebration, between the three gardens.
Ted Ensley gardens at 3650 SE 37th Street plants around 60,000 bulbs. At the Ward-Meade Botanical Garden at 124 NW Filmore Street, you'll find 40,000 more blooms. Finally, 24,500 more tulips will be located at Doran Rock Garden at 601 SW Gage Boulevard.
Three gardens in Topeka participate in this wondrous show of spring colors.
You can spend the whole day (or multiple days) just exploring the gardens and rejoicing in the simple yet colorful beauty of tulips.
The festival itself is all about the planting and beauty of the parks of Topeka.
It runs from April 6-23 this year, and the tulips should be in bloom even after the festival is over.
Tulip Time began in a small garden, owned by a man named Jerold Binkley, a member of the Topeka Beautification Association.
For over 20 years, he shared his visions of beauty in the form of gardening with visitors, and it slowly grew into much more. Now, Tulip Time attracts people from all over the nation who want to photograph the process and celebration of these beautiful flowers framed by the gardens they live in.
For a special treat, you can also enjoy Tulips at Twilight from April 6-15.
Gates open at 6pm for a candlelit walk between the tulips at the Ward-Meade Botanical Garden. Enjoy live music, food vendors, and historic tours by lantern light. You won't find anything like it elsewhere!
Make sure this must-see event is added to your bucket lists, because it's different every yera.
