My fiance and I decided to try the Vine to Wine wine tasting event at Memphis Botanic Gardens. We had a blast. The Gardens are a romantic getaway, adventurous discovery for kids and adults alike, and a dream come true for lovers or gardening, art, and photography opportunities. We saw gorgeous flowers, explored the most fun, creative areas created by... More

This is one of my family's favorite places to visit while in Memphis. We have been here several times and it never gets old. Our kids love feeding the fish and turtles in the nice ponds that they have. Have so many beautiful flowers and trees to look at. Great play area for the kids to play on. We can... More

The Memphis Botanic Garden has a special place in my heart. My husband proposed to me in the Blecken Pavilion. The gardens are beautiful and very family friendly. The Japanese garden is spectacular as well, but the Blecken is my fav! I'd suggest this attraction to any couple or anyone with young children! It's beautiful!

I went to a photography meet-up here and it was great. Loads of very scenic locations to shoot - from stream and ponds to trees and flowers. It would be a great place to walk, talk or just relax.

Our kids are six and four and loved visiting here! It was quite hot when we went but there are water fountains throughout the trails and lots of sitting spots. Definitely recommend spending time in my big backyard. Adorable playhouses and hands on fun. Next time I want to go in spring when more is in bloom. Still beautiful and... More

We went to the Botanical Garden before it became extremely hot. The size of the garden is very impressive.

We love taking the grandkids to the "my backyard garden" where the kids get to explore houses which have musical and other items to play with. The kids love the stream and enjoys some time walking in the water! When the rain starts (sprinkler system to keep stream running) they run through it like a child (duh!!!). They also enjoy... More

I have shared a table with friends at Live at the Garden for 6 years now. This will be our last year. The main reason ? PARKING HELL! We buy parking passes every year. Up until this year, we would roll in, park and walk to our table. This year...we come in on Perkins for some ridiculous reason...the entrance off... More

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.
