This is a very small garden, a hidden gem. We enjoyed the statuary and the flowers which were in full bloom. There were places to sit and contemplate all the color and beauty around you. Most things were labeled and that was a real plus.

No admission, one just wanders in. The setting is peaceful and charming. The plantings well marked and well placed. A nice diversion.

Very pretty small garden area between the river and the Nelson-Atkins Museum. When we were there, lots of flowers in bloom. Apparently, there were problems in the past with commercial picture taking here as it is no longer allowed.

Had visited this great memorial garden during early spring. The blooms were just coming up, but still was a treat to be walking through and seeing the rich floral collection.

These gardens are the final resting place of Ewing & Muriel Kauffman, Mr. Kauffman being the former owner of the Royals I believe. Their foundation sits across the street from the gardens which are just lively, filled with plants, flowers and baby pineapples (they are...More
