The newly renovated PowellsWood Garden, 430 S. Dash Point Road, will re-open its doors to the public with a celebration on June 22 and 23.

The garden will be open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $5, children 12 and under are free. Festivities include exploration of the garden’s summer color, bluegrass and harp concerts, a raffle, and refreshments in the Garden Room.

On-site parking at the garden is limited and visitors are requested to take the shuttle from Sacajawea Middle School, just one-quarter of a mile east of the garden on S. Dash Point Road. The garden’s regular hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday through October.

Each visitor to the garden during the re-opening celebration will be entered into a raffle for two free passes to the 2nd annual PowellsWood Storytelling Festival on Saturday, July 26.

The festival is co-sponsored by the Seattle Storytellers Guild. Listen to masters perform folk tales based on real people, historical events and personal experiences. These storytellers don’t read from a book. They mesmerize audiences with engaging and emotional tales told in their own words.
