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

Be part of the Arts & Recreation Foundation’s campaign to raise over $11,000,000 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.

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!
