This garden is up there with some of the country's best botanical gardens. I was early in the summer season, so a lot of the summer perennials were not in bloom. I can only... read more

The Botanical Gardens are a great place to see seasonal flowers in bloom and participate in a growing list of activities. The gardens themselves don't compare to more famous and more expensive gardens. However, they are one of my favorite places to visit or to have a meeting or to see a gallery exhibit.

This garden is up there with some of the country's best botanical gardens. I was early in the summer season, so a lot of the summer perennials were not in bloom. I can only imagine how beautiful it is in mid-summer. There is a nice Japanese garden section with a large pond, including some huge koi fish that you can... More

We went on a Sunday paid 8 dollars in get in. there were toilets. I was disappointed that there was no where to eat. The gardens were lovely, especially my big backyard that was great we did find a little drink booth there. If you visit buy some fish food at reception and feed the fish they are wonderful to...

We were here in March. Love the flowers, the atmosphere and layout of this location. Everything was just so beautiful here. Even in the light rain it was just fantastic. The children's area left us with great pictures too. We need to go back at a different time frame to see the differences in blooms.

Whimsical, beautiful, peaceful, and worth the admission price! Other than the two fire ant bites I got in the children's area, loved the gardens. I'm always like to know what I'm looking at and noticed lots of signage identifying plants was missing. I did report the fire ants but not sure it was addressed; they were in the lawn where... More

It's a wonderful place to visit; the gardens are lovely especially during the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. Being surrounded by a city park doesn't hurt the atmosphere but enhances it. I recommend this to anyone who wants to just enjoy the outdoors in a wonderful green environment.

To call this a botanic garden is a bit of a stretch, we walked most of the way around the garden and found only a few plants labelled so you had no idea what you were looking at. The gardens are nice and a pleasant area for a walk but there is a large part just geared up as a... More

I live in Memphis and this is one of my favorite places in the city. It's great for absolutely everyone, but I want to specifically talk about their special kids area called My Big Back Yard. It is the most amazing park for small children. I started taking my son here as soon as he could walk. It's one of... More

The Memphis Botanic Garden sits on 96 acres and holds 28 special gardens. We were fortunate to have an amazing guide whose love of gardens was contagious. We especially loved the vast Herb Garden, the Japanese Garden, the Big Backyard garden for children. There were a few giant magnolias about to blossom, many white dogwoods and some azaleas. I strongly... More
