“This was a great way to spend my first full day in Tennessee and I recommend any out of towner’s to come here. With endless trees and countless shades of green everywhere I looked, the grounds oozed southern beauty. The house/museum was filled with great art and artifacts. Lots of photo ops and relaxing places to nap or read so don’t forget to bring your camera and a book and blanket!”- Tasha
“Cheekwood is a beautiful landscaped woodland park. The flower bed are artfully laid out and mixed in multi-hued foliage plant to create a artistic blend of colors as well as shades of green. The large playhouses in one area were a huge hit with children and families. This is a terrific location to bring a picnic, wander and find the perfect spot to spend the afternoon.”- Bret
