Kansas State Capitol - Online Tour - Capitol Square

Kansas State Capitol groundsThe Capitol is situated on 20 acres in downtown Topeka.

The space has changed a great deal over the years. In the 1860s a stone fence was erected to keep out feral animals. The first Arbor Day was celebrated in 1875 when hundreds of trees were planted. Since that time the landscaping and sidewalks have been modified many times.

Capitol Square today is a park like setting home to many monuments and memorials.

Free visitor parking is available on the first level of the underground parking garage. The entrance to the garage is near 8th and Harrison Streets. The Capitol Visitor Center is located on ground level near the elevator.
