My husband & I are frequent visitors to Wichita & have seen these gardens in every season and we never fail to be impressed. I have dragged my husband to gardens all over and Botanica still stands out. It's not overly large so you don't wear yourself out (nice feature for taking your elderly mother-in-law!). It's just beautiful. Loved the butterflies.
During June the Butterfly gardens are lovely, before June you'll mainly find pansy's there. Walking through the wooded areas is my family's favorite thing to do. The ponds are gorgeous and the shakespearean garden is wonderful depending on the flowers in bloom and the time of year.
The lights that are set up during the christmas season are getting better every year.
Thank you for providing the Emporia Area Retired School Personnel with such knowledgeable and interesting guides while we toured the gardens yesterday. It has grown so much since I last saw it, I hardly recognized it. Actually I found myself wishing that a little more open space had been left. I used to enjoy standing at the pavillion railing and looking out across the water and grassy area. However, Wichita is to be commended for having such a nice faciliity, and good docents to tell people about the gardens
My husband and I wanted a beautiful outdoor wedding. We searched several places and decided on Botanica. We had over 200 guests and heard hundreds of compliments. Many of the guests arrived early and visited all of the beautiful gardens and smelled all the gorgeous flowers.
We rec'd our wedding pictures back and were delighted at how beautiful everything turned out.
This is a great place to visit for a fun afternoon or to host your wedding.
