“A santuary tucked into midtown”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

For those of you who have vitied Powell Gardens, this beautiful little santuary is maintained byt he same staff with care and love. I go there often for lunch break from work and on the weekends to sit among the garden and read a good book. Each season is a showcase of beautiful plants, and great ideas for our garden at home.

“Small, but well-maintained”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

The gardens are situated near the Plaza, so it is a little oasis of beauty right there in the city. The area is small, but it is very pretty and you can tell that they people in charge of the upkeep are very dedicated to making it look great.
I could enjoy the gardens in less than an hour, but some people may want to linger longer.

“Open to public, beautifully maintained...”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

just South of the plaza off Volker Rd,and walking distance from the Nelson-Atkins Museum, the gardens are a peaceful, tranquil, and beautiful respite from spring thruogh earlu fall. Unique plants are all labeled for easy identification, and many sitting areas along the path. A must see while in KC!

“Pretty garden oasis in near Plaza, Nelson Atkins, and park”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

This is a really, lovely little garden in the middle of several points of interest. We stumbled onto it looking for a bus to go out to Powell garden from a special exhibit at the Nelson a few years ago. It is quiet and lovely.
