Knoxville's BOTANICAL GARDEN
While it's a great place to have a picnic and enjoy an hour of peace, spending the entire afternoon at the Botanical Garden would be a wasted opportunity. Just like any other garden center, you'll get more out of your visit if you plan to visit all the spaces they have to offer. For example, membership in the Knoxville Botanical Society comes with member events and special discounts. Also, volunteering or working in the garden is a great way to get involved with this local treasure.

The garden is a beautiful tribute to Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic children's novel and its many fans. Visitors can enjoy the pleasant summer weather while taking in the peaceful beauty, or they may even have a spot to read from The Secret Garden.
Why visit here ..??

2. Botanic gardens are wonderful places for leisurely strolling and for indulging in a good old-fashioned picnic. In these gardens, you can see a wide variety of plants you might not see otherwise; a botanic garden, it's beautifully landscaped so that the eye is drawn to ferns, orchids, and camellias. A few conservatories are even devoted to bonsai exhibits and cutting-edge horticultural creations. And many feature different themed gardens, such as bonsai, heritage, Japanese or desert gardens. It's a great place to learn about the environments mini-ecosystems require. Botanical gardens also have a strong educational function; many of them conduct fun summer camps for kids with science, art, and craft projects that focus on messages about conserving our world's plant species and other fragile ecosystems.
3. While it can be tempting to fill up your home with artificial plants, nothing quite compares to the natural beauty of living plants. They're a rich source of inspiration and can provide a calming environment for creative thought during an otherwise hectic day.
