This is a wonderful place, and it continues to expand its offerings. If you enjoy botanic gardens, this is a must see if you are a local or a visitor. The daffodils in the spring are breathtaking. You can walk for hours here. If you have children, My Big Backyard is a MUST SEE (and experience). During the spring through... More

The Botanic Garden has something blooming most of the year - irises, daffodils, azaleas, dogwoods, and ornamental fruit trees. The Japanese Garden features a bridge from which you can watch [and feed] koi swimming in a pond. In the Spring, the wooded area is full of Spring blooming ground cover. The walk around the Garden paths is a pleasant experience.... More

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
