Holidays hero


From family photos against the stunning backdrop of the conservatory to a little fun with Santa and Mrs. Claus, it's easy to create memorable moments during the holiday season at Powell Gardens. Thank you to all of our guests, volunteers and employees who helped make the 2013 holidays so special!
