The Kansas Landscape Arboretum is a 193-acre (78 ha) nonprofit arboretum located in Wakefield, Kansas. It is open during daylight hours without admission charge.

The arboretum was established in 1972 mainly through the efforts of Ernest Bauer, Professor L. R. Quinlan (landscape architect at Kansas State University), and Bill Flynn (nurseryman from Abilene).

The arboretum includes about 1,000 species of native and exotic woody plants including green ash, crabapple, honey locust, juniper, maple, oak, osage-orange, pine, American sycamore, and black walnut. Much of the area is left in native vegetation. There are four short trails, a pond, and prairie meadows.
