The natural landscape of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge is truly breathtaking. Green and lush in the spring and summer, colorful and vibrant when the trees dress in their fall finest, and in the winter, when the snow blankets the ground, it offers a stark and desolate beauty that pleases the eye and soothes the soul. Everywhere you turn, the idyllic setting stuns and amazes, but in some places, Mother Nature outdoes herself, and Parrot Mountain and Gardens is one of those places that goes above and beyond what you’d expect!

Real life can be loud and brash, with lots of sharp edges, so even on vacation you may find yourself needing a soft place to land. Parrot Mountain and Gardens is the perfect spot to find some inner peace while enjoying the outer beauty of Tennessee. Featuring over four acres of tranquil gardens filled with thousands of colorful flowers, plants, and trees and a large number of equally colorful parrots, it’s our favorite place to spend a few hours on days we need a little extra peace. The Secret Garden is where the birds fly free, their colorful wings creating a breeze when they flap or offering a photo opp that will be the envy of your friends at home. Many of the parrots you see, touch, or feed are endangered, and the sanctuary of Parrot Mountain is where they are safe and secure.
Paved paths lead the way through the gardens, dotted with beautifully designed benches along the way, while a waterfall provides musical accompaniment as the water splashes onto the rocks below. In the fall, the hundreds of trees that shade the park add to the explosion of color, when their leaves turn from emerald green to rich scarlet, vibrant oranges, and brilliant golds, creating a setting that seems to have jumped right off the set of a technicolor movie.
