Flint Hills Discovery Center
20120405_CVB_133- Flint Hills Discovery Center (4).jpgThe Flint Hills Discovery Center is a dynamic tribute to the tallgrass prairie, and the Flint Hills that surround Manhattan. With more than 7,000 square feet of exhibit space, visitors get to explore how settlers and pioneers encountered shallow soils, which forced them to create new uses for a new land like grazing cattle. 

The striking beauty of the Flint Hills has a rich history waiting to be discovered. Guests can also partake in the immersive experience, visit the gift shop, or take a panoramic view of downtown Manhattan from the outdoor patios. 

Blue Earth Plaza
Adjacent to the Flint Hills Discovery Center is the Blue Earth Plaza. This beautiful space is perfect for setting up a picnic, taking the family, enjoying the outdoor fire, and watching the fountains as they dance with music and lights.
