Set on 915 acres of lush, rolling hills and windswept meadows, Powell Gardens — Kansas City’s botanical garden — offers breathtaking display gardens, interesting architecture, a nature trail and a year-round calendar of special events and classes for the entire family.

Garden features include an Island Garden, Perennial Garden, a Rock and Waterfall Garden, a Wildflower Meadow, an indoor conservatory, ever-changing Terrace Gardens and native plantings.

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 Perennial Gifts gift shop, a café and classroom space, plus a glass-topped conservatory.

Check out the butterfly exhibit in the glass-domed Conservatory. Exhibits change six times a year so there is always something to see.
