Redbud Gardens
2400 S. Scenic Ave., Springfield, MO 65807

Today’s Parks Pick-Me-Up features one of the most beautiful places in Springfield right now: the Redbud Garden, currently in full bloom at Springfield Botanical Gardens, 2400 S Scenic Ave. This collection of 74 flowering trees reflect 25 different varieties, making a rich texture of pink, azalea and white blooms. Admire the spring colors from a nearby bench, stroll around under the canopy, or take in a 360-degree view from the oval-shaped gazebo in the center of the garden. It’s easy to find from the Botanical Center parking lot. Just get there soon, before the blooms give way to leaves!

This garden is sponsored by Commerce Bank and maintained by the Hillbilly Gardeners Garden Club. Gardens are open sunrise to sunset.

Please be smart while visiting any park or trail: stay six feet away from others, avoid gathering in groups, cover your coughs and sneezes, and stay home if you’re showing symptoms of illness.
