“Nature in Overland Park, KS”

The Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is one of the best kept secrets in metropolitan Kansas City. It is located in Johnson County at the far south edge of the metro area, on 179th Street, 1/2 mile west of US-69. Still under development, large portions of the 300 acre park are being dedicated to the preservation and restoration of natural ecosystems. The traditional gardens began in 1996 with The Erickson Water Garden. Additional major gardens have been opened nearly every year. There are now 10 gardens and 8 arboretum ecosystems with 5 miles of trails. Some are paved and wheel chair friendly. One of the newest gardens at the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is the lovely Monet garden inspired by the gardens in Giverny. 14 sculptures are set throughout the gardens which blend willow trees, perennials and annuals around ponds.
