Every time I am at the arboretum, I'm amazed at all the people who volunteer to make this such a beautiful environment
The seasonal setting is lovely, and I went to see the luminaries this year. Wow, even beautiful in winter.
Statues are art. Appreciate them for what they portray.
The small charge is OK. It's reasonable to pay for this lovely experience.
Don't miss all this OPA has share.
The Arboretum & botanical gardens is a wonderful place to connect with nature.It is a peaceful, tranquil place to unwind. I enjoy walking among the beautiful flowers or just sitting by the lake meditating.

Like Ticks? I Know me to they are lovely and if you want lots of them this is the place for you! I recently visited the park I didn't leave the path or do anything that I shouldn't have and you know what i ended up with 13 ticks and you know what it really ticked me off! I will never go back!

I enjoyed my visit to the OP Arboretum. The grounds are well maintained, the volunteers are helpful, and the site offers gardens, wooded areas, a lake, a creek, hiking trails, walking paths, and a train garden.

The Arboretum is one of the hidden gems in Overland Park and the Kansas City metro area. Perfect for a quick jog or even a nature walk. It's a great area for photography. I will say this, though. Please contact the Arboretum offices, if you're planning on taking portraits there. There is a cost and times have to be reserved to do so.
If you haven't visited the Arboretum before, make sure you visit it soon.
