AAA Editor Notes
Western Kentucky Botanical Garden is 2 mi. w. on 2nd Street, then just n. to 2731 W. 2nd St. Now expanded to 12 acres, 13 themed gardens showcase an extensive collection of daylilies, irises and roses as well as ornamental and perennial grasses. An early 20th-century doctor’s building is adjacent to the Herb Garden, which features herbs and plants used medicinally at the time. A symbolic Japanese memorial garden is arranged with hollies, lattice fences and stone lanterns. A 21-foot stainless-steel basket sculpture which acts as a sundial and a solar smart flower which traps solar energy to use as electricity are the garden's recent additions.

Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
