The Lakemoor Hills Garden Club is a vibrant community of enthusiastic residents who care about their environment. The rewards of belonging to a garden club go far beyond the pure pleasure of growing things.
While joining a local garden club is indeed a great way to “green” your thumb and find out what grows well in your neighborhood, membership also provides an opportunity to expand your interests and build lifelong friendships while bettering your community and the environment.
If you are a resident of the Lakemoor Hills area who loves to create beautiful spaces and preserve the natural beauty of our neighborhood consider getting involved and join as a member. Find out more about the club.

Our Work in Progress
In the last few years, we have transferred our focus from the triangle at Montlake Drive to Legacy Park and Gardens at Circle Lake, Bluff Point and Alcoa Highway development projects.
This property, owned by Knox County Highway Department, was an unsightly sinkhole. It now is a designated garden on the Dogwood Trail and a quiet retreat for many in the neighborhood. It continues to be developed with native plants and is designated as a Certified Wildlife Habitat.
The Garden Club has worked directly with the City of Knoxville, Knox County and TDOT to incorporate landscape areas in the expanded portion of Alcoa Hwy between Woodson Dr. and Maloney Rd. Three roundabouts, new trees and wildflower gardens have been planned for the area. Installation of these plantings is scheduled for Fall 2021 at the completion of the road construction.
The public property located between the east and west lanes of Bluff Point Dr. had become unsightly and needed some care. The club, working with Bluff Point residents, have removed decaying trees, leveled the grade while improving the soil, revitalized the lawn area, added new dogwood trees and a flower garden with sculpture. The club and residents partner to maintain the property.
We’d love for you to join us for a monthly program, join the club as a member, volunteer on a work day or support a particular park project with a donation.
