My boys, 7 and 8, loved the Big Backyard part of the Botanical Garden. Lots to explore and learn with. Almost like the set of "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids."

We recently took a very large girl scout group to the garden. We setup a tour to talk about water life. The tour was was super fun as the girls got to skim bugs and such out of the pond. Later they got to finger paint pictures with pond scum. We had a lot of extra free time extra for... More

Memphis Botanic Garden is beautiful all times of the year. The Big Back Yard is great to walk through. There is a boat on a "river" to photo graph kids. One of my favorites was the floating bridge. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the day.

As a professional photographer, I paid the high annual fee to be able to take clients in for nice backgrounds in their portraits, but, as a pro photographer, I was REQUIRED to call in a week ahead of the scheduled shoot for permission (even though I paid the &75 annual fee). If another event was set for the time I... More

So many gardens to stroll through - rose, forest, sensory, Japanese, children's garden and more. The children's garden is a must see - so innovative and wonderful!

We've been to the botanical garden a few times, each time hoping it would 'grow' on us... but it hasn't. Not really more than average.

My family and I went to the Botanical Garden at the end of May and the flowers were just being planted. Every trail we took came to a dead end with nowhere to go but back the way we came. The "Big Backyard" was good for the young kids we did spend a little while there but other than that... More

Love this garden! Admission is $8 and totally worth it. Be sure to attend their food truck parties which feature live music and great local food.

We like to visit gardens when visiting cities when we travel. Unfortunately this one was not up to par. Maybe the end of September is not a good time but we saw nothing that we were "wowed" by. To top it off there was a book fair going on in the entrance facility and they had a horrible musician (I... More

Attended Sam Hunt/Darius Rucker concert with lawn seating. Took food and drink and chairs. People brought in coolers, picnic baskets and chairs in wagons. Crowd was extremely laid back, port-a-potties were clean, always stocked and sinks were set up as well. Food and drink was also available onsite as well. Great view of stage, but could also see numerous screens... More
