The Kansas Landscape Arboretum offers a glimpse of Kansas' nature at its best.
The Arboretum lies just south of Wakefield on the west side of Milford Reservoir. Over 1,000 species of native and exotic woody plants adapted to the Kansas environment are found here. It is open daily from 8 a.m. to dusk, March 1 to October 31. Stop at the kiosk off the Utah Street entrance for a brochure. Much of the area is left in native vegetation and foot trails provide easy access to both prairie and woodland habitats.
The area also includes the Whispering Water Natural Springs Memorial and the largest crab-apple tree collection in Kansas.
