The gardens at the Kauffman Foundation are excellent. Take a stroll after the meeting and just allow nature to renew you.

We stopped here as a halfway point of our Segway tour and it was stunning. A few fountains, of all different sizes, side-by-side graves (husband and wife) - talk about romantic sentiment! - and a wide variety of plants and flowers! Absolutely gorgeous.

Having been born and raised in KC we knew who the Kauffman's were. This tranquil garden was an easy drive from the Plaza area and a nice spot to sit and relax. I enjoy visiting gardens and this one did not disappoint.

What a beautiful garden. It is was full of lovely sounds and sights. It was not a huge area, but it had fountains, waterfalls and many native plants. What an escape from the city just feet away.

Response from Mark S | Reviewed this property |
I am not sure. Just call their office and see. It is a wonderful place!
Two questions: 1) Is there RV parking? and 2) Is it worth going as late as September, or is it starting to go dormant for the fall?

Hi Yes, there is plenty of parking. September would be less colorful but there are fountains, ponds and statues.
Are there indoor gardens?

It is primarily outdoors, but also features some interesting sculptures and is a very peaceful place to spend time in.
