Help the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens grow to inspire!.

Construction is underway – Opening Summer 2023!

Read about our sneak peek at the building’s progress.

Be part of the Arts & Recreation Foundation’s campaign to make this Overland Park treasure not only a 640-acre oasis of green space and the pride of our community, but an even more special and enjoyable experience for all who visit with the addition of LongHouse and new gardens and outdoor event space.

Features include:

  • 22,000 sq. ft. world-class visitor center – now known as LongHouse – with expanded cafe and gift shop, areas for exhibits hands-on life-long-learning, and beautiful spaces for weddings, corporate and community meetings and events
  • Expanded parking for 200+ cars
  • Outdoor areas and gardens with art and water features providing the perfect location in Overland Park for family, corporate and community events
  • Opportunity for the current visitor center to become what it was intended to be – the Environmental Education Center. Then, watch the Arboretum’s education program grow to inspire too!
