About The Gardens

The Gardens' philosophy encourages everyone to discover our past and be a part of our future. From our rich beginnings during the early 1900s to our ambitious goals for the future, The Gardens at Kansas State University have proven their ability to withstand the hands of time.

Why is there an old dairy barn in The Gardens? What happened to the formal gardens that existed on K-State's campus 50 years ago? The answers to all of these questions and more await you.

Take a peek into our past and share our vision for the future while celebrating our present.
