Pack a lunch, bring some friends, and come check out the array of plants we are growing in the garden!

  • We were biking the greenway and stumbled on the gardens. It was a nice break and a beautiful walk. Definitely recommend stopping by if you are in the area. It’s small, but peaceful and quiet.

  • What a great botanical garden. IMHO much better that the Knoxville Botanical Garden. Even in the August heat there were lots of things in bloom including some gorgeous huge hibiscus.

  • Loved walking in these gardens today. Nice trails. Adorable children’s area. Lots of places to sit. Tables also for picnicking. Lots of families here. Things were just beginning to bloom. The landscaping is amazing. Great place for photographers. If you’re doing a professional photo shoot they do charge a fee but if you’re just a hobbyist this is a great place with lots of subject matter.
  • Beautiful gardens and also lovely art on display in the gardens. I visited in July and there were lots of beautiful flowers in bloom. I also really like their succulent area, many interesting plants and lovely cacti.
