Powell Gardens reviews
Family of four enjoyed a nice evening at the festival of lights. Buy your tickets ahead of time online for faster entry. We bought a parking pass but that did not seem necessary for this event... more »
Do it! Go see this place. A beautiful well designed garden. Can't wait to come back, so many different trails and gardens to see. Bring a friend, a book or some paints and a canvas! You just want to sit and enjoy the scenery at every turn! The cafe grows all their food and it's delicious! Vegan and gluten free, amazing staff.
I love this place so much. I took my husband and daughter the for the first time. They loved it. It was super hot that day so we didn't stay very long. I enjoyed it either way though. So many butterflies!
