The Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum is a public garden enriching the Knoxville community and preserving the legacy of the Howell Nurseries.

KBGA is enhancing the area in which it resides. The Garden sits in the middle of an urban neighborhood in East Knoxville near the Magnolia and Cherry Street corridors. As the property is enhanced, it increases the value of the homes bordering KBGA – as well as our neighbors’ sense of pride in their environs. The facility provides much-needed community resources such as walking trails, a beautiful connection to nature and job training opportunities for area youth via partnerships with CAC and other local organizations. Additionally, this cultural jewel will make a significant impact on area tourism and will develop Knoxville’s reputation as a Garden City. Simply put – an investment in Knoxville Botanical Garden is an investment in our community.
