A Trip To Nashvillie’s Neverending Flower Fields Will Make Your Spring Complete
Cheekwood Botanical Gardens is known as one of the most beautiful places to visit in Nashville, and every spring the grounds show their true colors – literally. Check out a trip to Cheekwood during the ever-beautiful spring season, and you may never leave.
Cheekwood brings in over 150,000 tulips every spring to plant in their beautiful, expansive gardens.
The Bradford Robertson Color Garden is home to one of the most impressive displays, featuring arches covered in flowering vines and a plethora of floral colors.
The Robinson Family Water Garden is where most of the seasonal flowers are planted. Walking along the ponds in spring, when the tulips are in bloom will make you feel like you've been swept away to the lowlands of the Netherlands!
While the tulips are a big draw, the gardens feature countless other floral favorites, including snowdrops, daffodils, magnolias, dogwoods, and redbuds.
Cheekwood's annual "Cheekwood in Bloom" event lasts from late March to late April and features activities, music, and tours on the weekends. This is the perfect chance to take the family out and enjoy the warmer weather in a beautiful place!
Normally, admission to the gardens is $20, but keep in mind that parking is an additional $5. But, May 12th, 2017 is National Public Gardens Day, and Cheekwood is offering free admission that day!
The gardens open at 9 am, but the crowds start coming fast. To beat the heat and the crowds, plan on getting there early. Parking is limited near the entrance, and you can end up having to park further down the road when it's busy.
