The weather is nice, the Dogwoods are in full bloom and we're ready to get outdoors! Hike, bike and tour gardens with us as we present Dogwood season!
Featured Garden Tours
Twice a year stunning private gardens are opened up to the public! Come experience Dr. Alan Solomon’s garden April 13th & 14th. He has several pieces that were included in the Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Gardens. Come out to his home on Riverside Drive to look at wildflowers, perennials and special water features! The site features one of Knoxville’s oldest marble quarries. After head over to Lyons View Park for The Stair Gardens at Hilltop Farm. There you’ll find an asymmetrical garden, pool garden and pergola inspired garden!
