Tree Tour in the Woodlands • Johnson County

Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens • 8909 W. 179th. St. • Overland Park, KS • Map

Tour the 140 acres of naturally planted woodlands and view an estimated 4 million native trees in the 300 acre Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.

We will be walking on mulched pathways as we see rare Leatherwoods, 60’ tall Basswood trees, Hop Hornbeam, Coffee Trees, Dogwood, Hickories, Bladdernut, and thousands of Pawpaw Trees. Kansas has about 85 species of native trees and half of these species grow naturally at the Overland Park Arboretum woodlands.

Ken O’Dell and Jim Earnest will lead this tour. We will meet on the patio of the visitor center. If you are not a member or volunteer at the arboretum there is a $3.00 fee to enter.
