The entrance to the Ted Ensley Gardens is our Trailhead shelter and restroom located just north of 37th and West Edge Rd. From there you walk through a beautiful 60 ft. covered bridge over a rocky stream. Then you stroll on the sidewalks through a meditation garden, rock gardens, many annual and perennial beds, rose gardens, and water gardens. There is also a gazebo, pergola, waterfalls, streams, and several ponds.Plan your visit to Ted Ensley Gardens and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Topeka holiday maker website.

The Horticulturists, with the assistance of volunteers plant more than 80,000 Tulips and Daffodils that are in full bloom for the annual Tulip Time in Topeka. In May more than 90,000 annuals are planted in beds throughout the gardens.
