  • A Kansas City area treasure located in south Overland Park. The Arboretum is beautiful with winding tree covered trails that incorporate beautiful plants, sculptures and folk art, and a bird watching area. There is a pretty lake with a trail that leads to the Monet garden. The park also has a fun area for children. At the Arboretum entrance there is a nice visitor center that includes a small concession area with limited indoor and outdoor seating. The entire facility is very clean and well maintained with friendly staff.
  • Beautiful, wide open, inexpensive, and it's not crowded!! Perfect for family day on a nice day :) model trains and seasonal attractions (ex. Fairy garden). Very friendly and helpful staff located throughout park. The fish are HUGE and my toddler loved feeding them his goldfish crackers. We will definitely be going back!!!!
  • I have been to the Arboretum twice now and have loved it both times. It is such a beautiful place to walk and see many different flowers and observe nature. The first time I was there I got to observe Red Bellied Woodpeckers in their home in a tree. This last time the Peonies were in bloom and I was able to see many peony varieties that I din't even know existed. I love their Garden Railway set ups as well, the person running the trains was quite nice to talk with. A great place to visit.
  • Low key but very pleasant. Entrance fee is extremely low. A great place to relax while enjoying a leisurely stroll. Gardens are nicely done and the wooded area has good trails and a pretty creek. It is a wooded area so have bug spray.
  • It's beautiful and serene. I was there during the week I felt like I had the place almost to myself. Great place to just be. I loved every moment I was there. The staff were kind and friendly.
