Nancy regularly spends time with her great-grandchildren, reveling in the simple pleasures of being outside and exploring the 300-acre Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens.
It’s become their special place to connect with one another and create lifelong memories.
“My great-grandkids love the Arboretum because they can run freely, meander through tree-covered trails and visit their favorite spot – the Monet Garden. We’ve created a strong bond during our visits. It’s just magical. And that’s why this place is such an important part of our lives, and why I tell other grandparents to bring their grandkids to the Arboretum,” said Nancy.
