KINGSVILLE, Mo. – Powell Gardens is ready to go camping.
The Botanical Garden is taking proposals from companies and individuals to develop and operate a glamping area within the attraction.
Powell Gardens says it’s part of a plan to increase interest and enhance the visitor experience.
“Guests are attracted by the landscape and often request an overnight visit
experience,” Mark Zimmerman, Chief Operating Officer, said.
If you’ve never heard of glamping, think of it as glamorous camping. Many locations have elaborate tents, lots of pillows, and even beds inside the tent.
You can also go glamping in Kansas City’s Swope Park.
Anyone interested in submitting a glamping proposal to Powell Gardens can find additional information about the requirements on the botanic gardens website.
The deadline for submitting proposals is Friday, September 2, 2022.
