What do you do at Botanica in January and February? LOTS!

Here is a list of ideas and tips for your winter visit to Botanica, the Wichita Gardens:

  • Visit the Children’s Library, which is located in the lobby (a hidden Gem) 
  • Go on a Sculpture Walk
    • They have over 100 different sculptures throughout the property 
  • Visit the Downing Children’s Garden
    • Boeing Monster Woods has real and manufactured trees that come to life throughout the wooded play area. Within an over 20-foot tall Treehouse, several elaborately designed fairy houses and gardens!
    • Salamander Spring and Stream will be off but without water, it’s still very cool. Search for 13 lifelike salamanders along the banks. 
    • The Enchanted Glen features metal sculptures crafted into a favorite children’s story. Open the caterpillar to find dress-up clothes for a fairytale play or put on a puppet show in the Enchanted Glen.
    • Cargill Children’s Farm. Be sure to visit the Party Barn, representative of a typical Kansas barn. The hand-painted mural on the interior creates a realistic setting for birthday parties, classes, and family activities. 
    • Grandma’s Farmhouse depicts country life-equipped toys for kids to play with. 
    • Granddaddy’s Musical Maze you will find musical instruments tucked inside and make your way through to play a rainmaker, pagoda chimes, drums, and more. 
  • Check out the Chinese Garden of Friendship 
    • Dragon Wall, was hand-made of more than 200 pieces.  
    • Foo Dogs guard the entrance to Botanica’s Chinese Garden of Friendship. Often placed outside palaces, government offices, and tombs in China.
    • Treasured Friend or Mountain Pavilion is at the top of the stream and is a great place to sit and meditate. All of the limestone rocks behind the pavilion came from the Kansas Flint Hill. 
  • Woodland Bird Walk
    • Eagles Nest is a huge sculpture you can sit in. It is a replica of the actual size of an Eagles nest. Great photo op! 
    • Wild Turkey Wings is another great photo op to take a picture in front of. 
    • Bird Blind is a great place to sit and take in all the wildlife around you.
    • Bird Posts now line the walkway so you can learn about different birds that are native to Kansas. 
  • Go Inside the Greenhouse (a hidden Gem) 
    • A lot of people miss this unique spot! The greenhouse is attached to the Terrace Room near the lobby. It houses exotic and tropical plants and it’s a great place to get warm! There is also a small pool inside to give you a tropical environment.
  • Pack a Lunch and eat in the Headed Pavilion Overlooking the Pond 
    • Pack your lunch and take advantage of $5 admission.
