The Memphis Botanical Garden is a very attractively designed garden center. The children's garden, called My Big Backyard, was great and we spent most of our time here. We did not have time to see the entire gardens, but what we did see look very nice. It wasn't crowded at all. This is a nice place to spend the afternoon,... More

The "children's garden" is exceptional. There are many activities for kids to try out. A giant bird house is fun to see. There are plants growing literally in a "bed", a bedframe with box springs filled with dirt. The Japanese Garden is pretty nice too. And it was not very crowded.

I decided to come here while waiting for my hotel check-in on a weekday, right after a long flight. It was early morning and so blissfully peaceful. I went early to try to beat the Memphis heat. The only people there were a few people walking for exercise and a few families with small children. I really enjoyed the variety... More

The gardens are lovely but could be better kept. There is currently construction going on which limits access to certain areas. If you are looking for better Mid-West gardens, go to St. Louis.

One of the best botanic gardens I have visited. Very large Japanese style garden with bridges, shaped pine trees, Kori pools, and the best children's area I have ever seen in a garden. There were various houses children could explore, a running brook, etc. Highly recommend the Botanic Gardens as a place to visit especially if you have young children.... More

If you enjoy walking around outdoor gardens, this is the place to go! They had many different themed gardens. I loved the whimsical gardens where they had actual flower beds--bed frames with headboards & tailboards with flowers planted between them. The backyard area was fun with a swing wide enough for two people to ride together. There were many more... More

What a lovely garden and so well laid out. It had an interesting way of being laid out which made it a bit different. Some nice plants even though some were neither no longer in flower or were waiting to come into bloom. Well worth a visit.
