Visit the Arboretum

Experience the Arboretum for so many reasons.

Be captivated by the great outdoors on a walk in the woods, an invigorating hike, the beauty of trees and flowers and sculpture, and just being outdoors.

Learn something - the value of a tree, the history of Overland Park in the Train Garden, Native American culture at the Medicine Wheel, what to plant in a xeriscape garden - the list is endless, and it won't be in a classroom.

Escape your everyday routine and enjoy the natural world. Beautiful areas for quiet meditation abound.

Stimulate your senses - the smell of the herb garden, the sight of the Monet Garden, the sounds of birds, the feel of so many different kinds of tree bark. And for taste, enjoy a snack in the Garden Café . . . or bring along your own picnic.

Tours and field trip opportunities are available for groups.

Visit soon, and then share with us all the reasons - or that one special reason - you enjoy this very special place!
