Botanica Gardens in Wichita provides a magical outdoor space for local residents to spend an afternoon among nature. The gardens opened in 1987 with only four gardens and today boasts more than 30 themed gardens for guests to experience.
The gardens are open year-round and span 18 acres with more than 4,000 different species of plants. In the spring time, more than 50,000 tulips are in bloom, which is quite a sight to see. A children’s garden features a giant tree house, a water pump, and of course lots of plant life. During the holidays, guests can visit to see large, festive light displays dispersed throughout the grounds.
Admission into the gardens is free for members, $7 for adults, $5 for kids and free for children under 2. Group admission is available for larger groups, so call ahead if you plan to visit with more than 10 people.
