"Powell Gardens at Kingsville, Missouri" Kingsville by basstbn

Kingsville Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 45 photos

You will often find the Powell Gardens listed as a Kansas City destination. It is indeed a wonderful place to visit while in KC, but is actually located 30-40 minutes east of the city near Kingsville, Missouri, on US Highway 50.

Locals like to visit several times during the course of the year to witness the changing seasonal displays. Over 6,000 different varieties of plants are featured, approximately 225,000 plants are growing during the course of the year.

A marvelous visitor's center includes a gift store, restaurant, restrooms, displays and class rooms.

BE CERTAIN TO CHECK OUT MY TRAVELOGUES FOR THIS LOCATION. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF ADDITIONALS PICTURES TO BE FOUND THERE.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Outstanding displays of flora and fauna changes with the seasons.
  • Cons:On July and August afternoons, it's a steamy place to be!!
  • In a nutshell:A Wonderfully Relaxing Stroll in the Beauty of Nature!!

    What a gorgeous spot, esp for a wedding. I am a gardener and also am waging a battle with my neighbourhood bunny. Thanks for visiting my Arches pages, give me a couple more days to finish it up for you!
