    Visit Powell Gardens

    by Jewelslover Updated Aug 23, 2005
    Flowers at Powell Gardens

    My mother and I have visited Powell Gardens for the last 13 years or so, we started visiting when it was just getting started. We've watched it change and grow so much over the years; the visitor center, the chapel, the water gardens, the lake. I went to college just 20 miles from Powell Gardens in Warrensburg, Missouri, at CMSU.

    Powell Gardens is very peaceful and beautiful. There are wonderfully colored flowers and plants, a water garden, a rose garden, a visitor's center with a cafe and a chapel.

    Foyer of visitor's center

    The visitor's center is your entry-way to this magical world of natural beauty. In it you will find a lovely restaurant, a unique shop featuring gifts for the gardener or flower lover, classrooms, meeting and reception rooms, an indoor display of tropicals, and most crucial of all - the restrooms.

    Children adore puppets

    During many weekends and festivals, there is live, free entertainment on the grounds. On this occasion, Kansas City's exciting Paul Meissner Puppets took the stage, enchanting children, parents, and grandparents with their rendition of an Indian story from America's southwest.

    View of the chapel from across the prairie meadow.

    by basstbn Updated Jul 20, 2003

    A prairie meadow gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy and become acquainted with the wildflowers growing naturally in the prairies of the central states. Across this little piece of prairie can be seen the Marjorie Allen Powell Chapel.

    Woodland setting

    by basstbn Written Jul 20, 2003

    A gentle stream flows through this Missouri woodland setting. This area comes alive in April and May when the azaleas, rhododendrens, dogwood and red bud trees are in bloom. In June, the hydrangeas and hostas are most plentiful.

    Good rabbits!!

    by basstbn Updated Jul 20, 2003

    At the time of this visit, I was not feeling too cordial toward bunnies of any kind, having sacrificed all too many plants in my own flower gardens to satisfy the appetites of these not-so-lovable creatures. However, I found these to be incapable of destroying plants, therefore a little more lovable. We enjoyed watching little kids crawl over these sculptures.

    The Patio around the visitor's center.

    by basstbn Written Jul 20, 2003

    The visitor's center patio offers a variety of activities and displays - especially on weekends. My wife, Nancy, also found a serene, shady spot to rest her eyes.

    Display of tropicals

    by basstbn Written Jul 20, 2003

    Located inside the visitor's center. Great place to cool off after walking around outside on a hot summer day.
