The Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum (KBGA) is located on 47 acres of former Howell Nurseries, featuring walking trails, display gardens, unique & historic horticulture and over two miles of distinctive stone walls and timeless buildings, just five minutes from downtown. KBGA is a privately owned and operated Garden supported through donations and membership. Thanks to our members and local supporters we are able to offer these beautiful Gardens to the public for free!
All are welcome to stroll through the Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum anytime to see the renovation of the Historic Plot Barn into a new Welcome Center. We are very excited about this much needed addition, scheduled to open early Fall 2015! On the Center For Urban Agriculture side of the Garden, Historic Mule Barn is being reconverted into a Farmer’s Market and Certified Community Kitchen, along with other updates and growth.
