Member Appreciation Day
On Monday, October 2, we hosted Member Appreciation Day. Twice a year, we open the grounds especially for a day of celebration of our members. We offer mansion and garden tours, live music, refreshments and special programming all day long.
Cheekwood members have the benefit of unlimited access to the grounds, free parking, sneak peek previews of festivals and exhibitions, priority access to special event tickets and reciprocal admission to nearly 200 botanical gardens, arboreta and conservatories nationwide, and over 60 museums in the Southeast.
What else is there to love about being a Cheekwood member? We asked a few families what they enjoyed most about their memberships.
“I like having a beautiful, different environment to escape to… to be able to come walk around with my son. He loves the trains. Fall is our absolute favorite season at Cheekwood because of all of the programming like El Dia de los Muertos and the Pooch Parade.”
– Rachel and son, Everett
“For us it’s a nice quiet place to pack a picnic and get out and enjoy the day. We love the wide variety of events that are offered. Fall is one of our favorite seasons because of all of the weekend activities.”
– April, Nate and daughter, Lilly
“We love gardening, so for us it’s a wonderful place to come and see what’s blooming in the gardens and get inspiration. We especially love coming during Cheekwood in Bloom to see the tulips. Our daughter loves coming to see the turtles and ducks in the ponds. It’s just wonderful place to be able to come and spend time outdoors.”
-Tu, Van and daughter, Nguyen
“Coming from New York City, Cheekwood is the closest thing to Central Park we have. It’s so pretty and we especially love the seasonal events like El Dia de los Muertos. As new members, we’re looking forward to being able to bring family out for all of the wonderful educational programs.”
– Grace and daughters, Aniaya and Tinerra
