This is a charming little garden, tucked out of sight and seemingly in its own world. I found it lovely, peaceful, and a pure delight.

A small public garden - unique enough to spend time there, small enough to go through quickly. Don't miss the greenhouse cat.

A great little garden close to Country Club Plaza and the Art Museum. Beautiful flowers and sculptures in the fountain. It was a nice place to site down and relax for a bit as I was exploring the area.

This is a wonderful memorial garden for Ewing and Muriel Kaufman (former owner of the KC Royals). There is an arbortoruem and a large outside garden as well. It is well maintained, plants changed seasonally throughout the year.

A beautiful quiet garden in the heart of the city, also the final resting place for Ewing and Muriel Kauffman, the original owners of the Royals and two of KC's greatest philanthropists. Open from dawn to dusk, it's a great break in the day if...More

You would have think of the Missouri side of Kansas City being completely urban, however, places like this become beautiful retreats in the middle of it all. This is a difficult place to describe. While not being a botanical garden the flora thrive year round...More
