Botanica, the Wichita Gardens, includes 10 acres of theme gardens with a butterfly garden, Shakespeare garden, rose & wildflower Garden, greenhouse, aquatic garden, woodland walk, and the new Sensory Garden. During the warm months, there is a butterfly house where you will be surrounded by hundreds of butterflies and watch as new butterflies emerge from their chrysalides, dry their wings & take their first lights.

The Sally Stone Sensory Garden allows visitors to experience Botanica with all their senses. Visually impaired visitors may touch the plans along the plant wall, feeling the different textures and enjoying the various fragrances. There are special planting bays where wheelchair bound visitors may work with plants. Displays show techniques and tools that will aid gardeners with special needs. 

Botanica offers workshops and field trips throughout the year, including free Wednesday lectures on a variety of horticultural and related topics.

Many of the Wichita Gardens' indoor and outdoor locations are available for rent. Botanica is a popular location for weddings and for family photos.
