  • Worth the drive and you must walk the island. The island alone is worth your time and money. See in any weather. The grounds are fantastic. Nature at its best. 
  • The Powell Gardens offered a tractor show, pumpkin painting and wonderful plants and flowers. The chapel is definitely worth the walk! 
  • Beautiful gardens! A great place to explore and walk around at any time of the year. I have been coming here since I was a kid and it was always one of my favorites! It never gets old coming here and they always have fun exhibits that visit each year, such as the dinosaur exhibit, the insect exhibit, the Lego exhibit, and the butterfly exhibit. A wonderful place to spend a few hours or the whole day outside and enjoying nature!
  • One of the most beautiful gardens around, it's very well kept up, the staff & volunteers are friendly, clean restrooms, lots of area to walk around to take pictures, walk & enjoy the fresh air & everything nature has to share! The annual butterfly exhibit is a must see! I can't say enough about this place! 5 stars!
  • Amazing! Cool plants and a great place to walk. I'd recommend going in spring or fall though
  • One of the best prairie botanical gardens in the world! Outstanding displays of tall, stately prairie plants, woodland natives)&shade-loving garden plants), and perennial garden plants. Terrific display of edible gardens & orchards!
  • Enjoyed the dinsour sculptures and was beautiful to see all the flowers blooming. Kids really enjoyed the small spray fountain they have here.
