I initially brought my 3 boys out to "hunt" Pokémon. After our first visit, we've been back 3 times. Such a nice quiet place to walk and enjoy nature and time with the kids. Makes for a great place to have pictures taken as well!

If you want to see beautiful flowers in a suburban setting, this place is for you. It is in southern Overland Park and has a lot of seasonal flowers, streams, waterfalls and trail. The whole family should enjoy it!

Hi, the cafe is in the nature center and actually really just a cafeteria style place. However if you take your beverage outside on the terrace or sit by the fireplace in doors it feels like being in a European café.
