Description:

Located next to Theis Park and within sight of the Volker Fountain, this two-acre garden is part of the Kauffman Legacy Park. Powell Gardens, in partnership with the Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation and Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, manages and maintains the garden. There are four distinct sections and 7,000 plants in the garden.

Located in the Green Garden is this octagonal-shaped fountain dedicated to the memory of Ewing & Muriel Kauffman. On the north is the Orangery building and to the south is a pergola. It is the centerpiece of the line of fountains in the Kauffman Garden. Going from east to west, you have Woman With Shell on the east wall, this fountain and then the long pool in the Parterre Garden.
