The Historic Estate
Cheekwood is considered one of the finest American Country Place Era estates in the nation. The property includes 13 distinct gardens including the Blevins Japanese Garden and the Bracken Foundation Children’s Garden, as well as a 1.5-mile woodland trail with modern and contemporary outdoor sculptures.
Each year, Cheekwood hosts seasonal festivals including Cheekwood in Bloom, Summertime at Cheekwood, Cheekwood Harvest and Holiday LIGHTS.
Cheekwood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, and it’s a three-time USA Today Top 10 Botanical Garden. In 2020, the grounds were awarded a Level II National Arboretum Accreditation by The ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program and The Morton Arboretum.
Cheekwood is located just 8 miles southwest of downtown Nashville at 1200 Forrest Park Drive.
