My daughter and I were quite disappointed in these gardens. The walk was nice and shady. We kept hoping to see the flowers and only saw a few. Maybe we are just spoiled with other botanical gardens we have been too. There were few signs to indicate what the trees, shrubs, etc. were. The mansion was interesting, but it does need some work (hence the high price of admission?). We did not enjoy the recycled plastic artwork -- not our cup of tea. If you just want a walk in the woods, then this is your place. If you want to see beautiful flower gardens -- go somewhere else.

Cheekwood is the epitome of southern gracious beauty. It is not a tourist trap, but you can spend hours among the gardens and art and feel like you've really experienced the best of Nashville.

Take a short ride or Uber to this gem . Walk thru the woods surrounding the home and explore the art .
We went in the fall and they had scarecrows from every walk of life. Must be a sight at holiday time when they have the gardens lit .

Beautiful and thoughtfully laid out - loved walking the paths. Going through the museum was a nice break from the heat. Very large area, you could easily spend hours here.
