“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

Gorgeous and so endemic to the culture and tranquility of KC itself. It is such a wonderful, peaceful place, surrounded by beauty.

“Nice place to visit off the Plaza”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Large variety of flowers. Liked that it had free peaking and free admission. Didn't like anything. Very well laid out.

“A beautiful two acre piece of serenity and beauty in the heart of KC”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

We are big fans of botanic gardens in general, and love Powell Gardens southwest of the city, but the Kauffman Garden was a new find this trip. Located just southwest of the Nelson-Atkins Museum, this free small garden is beautiful, with plantings that resemble an ambitious Midwestern backyard garden. Nothing exotic, just nicely designed flowering gardens.
