General Garden Tours

Experience the magic of childhood as you enter under the iridescent rainbow of Botanica’s Downing Children’s Garden. Follow the yellow-stem path of the Rainbow Trail. Wind your way up to Sunflower Plaza Fountain. Discover the Monster Woods and jump over, or maybe in, the Salamander Stream.

Made possible by a donation from Paula and Barry Downing, the Downing Children’s Garden is an enchanting place for kids and kids at heart. Reflective of our Kansas roots and landscape, more than one acre of themed areas host youth programming and family activities. Young and old alike are delighted with one-of-a-kind encounters and breathtaking views from Granny Jean’s Treehouse. Stay a while or skip on through...the Downing Children’s Garden welcomes you!
