Themed events happen all the time at Cheekwood. Right now themed scare crow decorate the garden ranging from books like "Where the Wild Things Are ", to local art production groups, and even to local doctors offices. OK...you may not think a local doctors office could offer much as far as a scarecrow is concerned, but when it's in the form of a giant syringe man who looks more happy to give you a shot it could be pretty scary! They have had trains featured at Cheekwood this year in addition to tree houses and a pumpkin patch.
Tranquil water features make great locations for photos or just for having a picnic. A stream with bridges feeds into two ponds that are connected by a waterfall. Cheekwood achieves a good blend of open spaces, planting areas, and landscape features.
