Knoxville Botanical Garden Reviews & Ratings
I just took my three children here and we all loved these wonderful gardens. I have an infant and the paths were easy to traverse with a stroller. The kids loved finding pollinators, roaming through a bamboo forest, and the secret garden. It was so peaceful and views were amazing. The best part was it is free. Donations are of course appreciated. I highly recommend this lovely retreat. It's the end of summer now, but I plan on returning in late spring/early summer to see it at it's most spectacular.
This place is beautiful! Relaxing! Great for special occasion pictures or just pictures in general! If going to enjoy I’d wear tennis shoes! Well kept and kid friendly. The beautiful flowers are my favorite!
Peaceful and sprawling grounds. A lot of the gardens are disjointed from each other so be sure to use a map if you want to discover it all. Great for kids who need to run and explore. Event spaces are very nice as well. The home would make an incredible wedding venue.
Plenty of parking spaces available but that might be due to what you read in the rest of my comments. The place is laid out very nice with a lot of stone walls and a rather neat but small bamboo forest with trails. It doesn't look like the place is maintain very regularly. In one of my photos you can see weeds growing up right in front of a bench. It would be nice to see this place add more areas for flowers and butterfly bushes. I can only compare this place to the botanical gardens I visited in Birmingham Alabama and one in Miami Florida. I would say this place needs a little work in order to bring more people in.
I have always been a huge fan of botanical gardens in any city. It’s usually one of my go-to places for a pleasant walk when I’m in a new city. I went on a weekday. Entrance to the botanical gardens was free. I was pretty surprised to be almost the ONLY person there. It was a little confusing at first, but I was amazed at the beauty, especially of the stone “fairy gardens” as I call them. It was a unique experience to be alone. A man who lived across the street showed me around the gardens and told me a bit of history and I was glad to have had him share his knowledge. The thing is, he is not employed by the gardens. They are supposedly ran by a very small staff. These gardens have been forgotten by the majority of residents it seems. Maybe people don’t care anymore. I love appreciating local, free, historic, recreational opportunities and there are plenty to be found in Knoxville. They also host events. I intend to go back and find a way to give back. Anyone in the Knoxville area, I would recommend visiting the Botanical Gardens. Appreciate what’s around you!
