School Tours

The Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens is a wonderful location for nature walks. There are so many interesting birds, plants and animals, kids can be entertained for hours.

If you are interested in visiting with your school or class, please call 913-685-3604 to let us know when you are coming and how many people are in your group.

  • If you have selected a date and there already are two or three schools planning on attending that day, we will suggest you choose a different date. This will ensure there are enough picnic tables, trash cans and restrooms for everyone.
  • Please bring at least one chaperone for every five children. Please select chaperones who are truly interested in monitoring your group's activities.
  • Bus/van drivers should drop off at the entrance sidewalk then park in the bus parking lot on theĀ Arb_trails1west side.


Regular admission fees apply for everyone attending.

The fees are based on age:

  • $3 - 13 years old and over
