Enjoy a beautiful day at Cheekwood, strolling along the many garden paths and wooded areas. Eat lunch at The Pineapple Room or take advantage of various evening activities that are held in the summer.

“Very nice morning at the gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

This was a very nice botanical gardens. A good site while we visited Nashville. It was pretty hot and humid, but there's plenty of shade to keep it bearable. The mansion and especially the family history was also very interesting.

“Beautiful gardens”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

The gardens here are lovely and there's an exhibit of giant wood scup
Lot urges of various bugs - very cool! The mansion had an exhibit of Andy Warhol Flowers. I'm not a huge fan of his, so we didn't spend much time in there. If you have kids with you, they have a great play area.

“Beautiful gardens and sculpture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We went mid-week so no crowds. Helpful info at visitors centre. These gardens are a beautiful walk with sculptures scattered through out. The family home at the top of the hill is a wonderful insight into times past.
