So disappointed with our recent trip to the gardens and the extremely rude and confrontational security guard. The flowers were of course beautiful and that is why our kids wanted to have prom pictures taken there. There's nothing on the website indicating you cannot take photos but the rude and aggressive security guard made us leave. Apparently you can take... More

This is a beautiful garden spot -- hidden in plain view behind a garden wall immediately across Rockhill Road from the Kauffman Foundation and just a block from the campus of UMKC and three blocks from the Country Club Plaza. Wonderfully convenient and ample parking, too. Impeccably maintained, the garden is wonderful any time of the year and it's a... More

Strolling through the very well laid out gardens is a treat to the senses. On one visit a wedding party was gathering for a native ceremony in front of the unique fountain/pool. There is always something going on that is a visually exceptional occasion, but there are many areas to sit and quietly regard the lovely surrounds even if filled... More

Beautiful spot to stop and take a stroll! We were on Segway tour and stopped here. Even though it was winter and little was blooming, the indoor trees and plants were nice and the resident fat cat was sunning himself in the window basket.

A really nice small garden area in the city. Even though it was Thanksgiving time and the flowers were mostly gone, this is a special place. Nicely done paths and an atrium with a large, fat cat guarding it. Can't wait to come back and see it in the spring or summer!

This wonderful garden is a great place to bring your lunch and hang out. Anyone that needs a little break during the day should just drop by and walk around. The resident cat is cool too.

This garden is beautifully designed and landscaped. Each season, they update it, so we saw fall mums in addition to the various native plants there. It has several magnolia trees growing against a wal and a wonderful fountain. It is an easy walk with paved sidewalks.
