Good relationships require special care and the intimate garden of PowellsWood is the perfect place to cultivate family bonds over Mother’s Day weekend. Whether one wishes to reminisce about days gone by in a setting filled with plants that evoke fond memories or to introduce a new generation to an English-styled elegant experience, PowellsWood delivers.
Called Federal Way’s “Secret Garden” by many, PowellsWood’s hedged walls and lay of the land create the illusion of being farther from the surrounding urban neighborhood than is actually the case. Mature trees and densely-planted perennial beds impart a sense that this garden has existed far longer than its twenty-five years. A stroll through this English-inspired garden has the power to transport the visitor into another time and place as completely as a flight across the Atlantic.
Standard Garden Admission applies to this event. Adult admission is $7.00, youth ages 13 to 18 are $5.00, children 6 to 12 are $3.00, children 5 and under are free.
Catch up over a pot of tea and sweet treats in the Garden Sun Room or on the patio. No reservations needed; guests will be seated in the order in which they arrive. Check in with the hostess to be seated. Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm
And/or take an unhurried, exploratory stroll through the garden using our new visitor’s guide and interpretive materials. Benches spaced throughout the garden rooms provide the perfect location to linger over a good conversation. Light picnicking is also permitted.
Sunday from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm visitors may enjoy the music of harpist Victoria Norman. Ms. Norman will play a concert on the Garden Sun Room patio. Concert is included in garden admission.
Shuttle provided from Sacajawea Park lot, just east of the garden at 1401 S. Dash Point Road; no on-site event parking. Little to no wait time for shuttle as it runs continuously. Handicapped visitors should call at least 3 days ahead to discuss parking options.This entry was posted on 04/29/2017 in Northwest Gardening Blog by PowellsWood
