Surrounded by the Jessie Wooldridge Brosius Rose Garden, the Margie Button Memorial Fountain is one of Botanica’s most beloved features. Built in the shape of a flower with four petals, it is 35’ in diameter. Centrally located, three levels of water cascade down the Fountain and over hand-painted ceramic tiles depicting landscapes and underwater scenes.
The Tribute Pathway divides large annual beds surrounding the Fountain that rotate from Tulips to Mums with colorful surprises in between. One of Botanica’s original gardens, the Fountain was built for the grand opening in 1987. In the evening, outdoor lighting produces an equally exquisite image of this Wichita icon. At the heart of Botanica, enjoy the views and the vibes around the Margie Button Memorial Fountain and Garden.
