  • Oaklawn Garden, also known as Oaklawn Gardens, is a botanical garden, park and museum located at 7831 Old Poplar Pike in Germantown, Tennessee, USA. A historic residential home, erected by the original landowner in 1854, is situated on the property. Floral attractions on the 20 acres (8 ha) property consist of daffodils, azaleas and other native flowers. About 2 acres (1 ha) of Oaklawn Garden are dedicated to the cultivation of more than 300 varieties of daffodils, an effort that was started in 1924. Boxwood, oak, birch and other species of indigenous trees and shrubs represent the woody plants in the botanical garden and park. Oaklawn Garden is also home to smaller species of native wildlife. Historic items relevant to local cultural history, as well as railroad and local traffic history are on display in the museum exhibit of Oaklawn Garden. The museum segment consists of an outdoor collection and an indoor exhibit. The outdoor collection was started around 1975 and is integrated into the botanical garden and park. The indoor exhibit was started circa 1987 and is housed in a former florist shop which was built at Oaklawn Garden in 1957. In 2009, the botanical garden, park and museum are privately owned but open to the public. The property owner, Harry Cloyes and his wife Becky, donated the property to city of Germantown to keep it as a public park, garden and history museum of Germantown. For years when azaleas in full bloom, normally the first two weeks of April, the garden has become a local attraction to take family pictures including wedding pictures. The Oaklawn Garden is free and open to the public, but donations are welcome.
