Explore the Arboretum
When Martha McCoy and her family transferred ownership of their farm to the Town of Walden, they specified that it be used as an arboretum, a park, and a recreation area. In honor of their wishes, McCoy Farm & Gardens applied to the Tennessee Urban Forestry Council for arboretum certification. It was awarded a level 2 certification in 2023. Unique in its focus on the biological community of Walden’s Ridge, the property includes lawns, an apple orchard under restoration, Pinetum, and woodlands with a rich variety of over 60 labeled tree species including both native and exotic specimens.
