Powell Gardens

Set on 970 acres of lush, rolling hills and windswept meadows, Powell Gardens–Kansas City's botanical garden–offers breathtaking display gardens, interesting architecture and a nature trail. Features include: an Island Garden; the Heartland Harvest Garden, which is the nation's largest edible landscape; a Perennial Garden; the David T. Beals III Woodland and Stream Garden; a Wildflower Meadow; an indoor conservatory; the ever-changing Terrace Gardens; and native plantings. There is an extensive, year-round calendar of special events and classes for the entire family.

Besides being a gardening enthusiast's dream, Powell Gardens offers unique contemporary architecture. The Marjorie Powell Allen Chapel, designed by architect Fay Jones, offers a quiet place for reflection and inspiration. Jones, a native of Arkansas and student of the master Frank Lloyd Wright, is famous for his Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs. In addition to the Chapel, he designed the Visitor Education Center and the Meadow Pavilion. All structures blend with the serene and natural surroundings of the Gardens.

The 18,000 square-foot Visitor Education Center houses the Perennial Lounge where visitors can find seasonal gifts, snacks, and beverages; classroom space; and a glass-topped conservatory.

General Admission: $10; $9 ages 60+; $4 ages 5–12; children under 4 get in free. Festival Admission: $12; $10 ages 60+; $5 ages 5–12; children under 4 get in free. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day.
