Powell Gardens is a beautiful botanical garden located in Kingsville, Missouri, approximately 30 miles east of Kansas City. It spans over 970 acres and is renowned for its stunning display of horticulture, plant collections, and diverse landscapes.
Established in 1988, Powell Gardens was the vision of George E. Powell, Sr., and his wife, Olive, who wanted to create a place where people could connect with nature and experience the beauty of gardens. The garden was opened to the public in 1988 and has since become one of the premier botanical gardens in the Midwest.

In addition to the themed gardens, Powell Gardens also features several walking trails that wind through prairies, woodlands, and wetlands. These trails allow visitors to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape and observe native plant and animal species in their habitats. The Byron Shutz Nature Trail is particularly popular among nature enthusiasts and provides a peaceful escape into the wilderness.
