Memorial Garden Program

Powell Gardens, Kansas City’s botanical garden, is a well-loved place for creating family memories or finding a renewed sense of peace during difficult times. The secluded Memorial Garden offers a private sanctuary for memorializing a loved one with placement of cremated remains and a memorial plaque.

With the Marjorie Powell Allen Chapel as a backdrop, the Memorial Garden’s path meanders among native wildflowers, redbuds, and lofty oaks. A stone wall embracing the site holds the memorial plaques offering a lasting tribute for a loved one.
