“Stunning Gardens and Sculptures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Cheekwood Gardens are a wonderful place to spend an afternoon when you're visiting Nashville. Right now, there is a special exhibit of huge wooden bugs throughout the gardens. They are amazing! The Pineapple Restaurant is a lovely spot for lunch.

“Walk in the Gardens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

I liked that they had a walk way to walk on and a bug statue special feature, along with a train set up when I was there.

“Very nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

My sister and I stopped here while on a short trip in Nashville. The grounds were just beautiful. The drive here was nice; Cheekwood is in a very nice neighborhood. Loved seeing the little boys watching the outdoor train display and thought of how my son would've loved it years ago. Great place to go to to take a break from the country music overload!
