Baddour Parkway Arboretum and Gardens
Baddour Parkway Arboretum became a certified arboretum through the Tennessee Urban Forestry Council in 2014. We host various workshops and presentations; most are free to the public. The BPA is located on a clay and limestone floodplain, like so much of Wilson County. Take heart! You can grow trees and flowers here.
In 2017, the Wilson County Fair’s agricultural commodity will be “The Year of the Sunflower.”
Remember to stop and see the gardens!
The Butterfly Garden, Scent Garden, Native Garden as well as the Entrance Gardens are located close to the Main Gate of the James E. Ward Agricultural Center … they are all “doable” gardens for the homeowner. Within Fiddlers Grove Historic Village you will find gardens by Town Hall, Veterans Building, Forbes Cabin and Rice Cabin. You might also take a stroll by the Herb Garden. There is a vegetable and flower Demonstration Garden on one side of the Wilson County Master Gardeners Building and a Memory Garden on the other side. You will even find two Rain Gardens on campus (for those who are trying to control water runoff in their yards).
