#5 of 6 in Parks in Topeka
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.

The Ted Ensley Gardens are a great place to take in the beauty of nature. 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.

  • For a town that is not really known for its attractions or beauty this is good. It is well kept with many beautiful things blooming even in early August and awesome shady lawns under majestic oaks with the cool breeze coming off of the lake which is right there sparkling through the trees. A great place to take visitors for a lunch and to spend an hour or two strolling.
  • It's just a peaceful place. Though I would use this time to determine where water overruns the walking paths during rainy weather and regrade them. Just "simple" things like that will make it more enjoyable in all weather and keep Ted Ensley Gardens ahead of other places of its kind.
