Our last visit was to see the origami that was translated into large steel sculptures throughout the garden. Very good time. We also stopped at Fratelli's Cafe for lunch. Always friendly and good.

Sad to say that so much acreage was undeveloped. Was great for getting an afternoon walk but disappointing when compared to the Garden in St Louis. Makes me appreciate what I have available all year long.

The acreage is huge, the content and interest was minimal. To be fair, we visited in October, but most municipal gardens around the country make sure that there is seasonal plantings and decorations...not this one. The map handed to us was worthless...an idiot must have...More

Very nice garden but frustrating that only some of the specimens are labeled. It's frustrating with so many plants but no way to know what they are. Missouri Botanic in St Louis is much better in that respect.

We went here after over a week of sightseeing. It is a beautiful place. Wished we had had our granddaughters with us to enjoy all the fantastic areas designed for children. Be sure to have lunch at their restaurant. Fantastic food

This garden has something for everyone. It has the best children's area we've seen at a Botanic garden and we have visited close to 100 gardens.

Hi, we visited the Gardens but not a concert. Not sure about bringing your own food to a concert.

Yes you should be able to see most of the plants. The garden is massive, we didn't see it all as it got far too hot for us. We made it through 70%. Parking is on site and make sure to bring a bottle of water and sunscreen

Memphis Botanic Garden - Lynyrd Skynyrd (1 Replies)
Coming over next week and have tickets for this - can't wait. However, I've tried to find out if the venue serves beer and food (checked out the website, info not the best), so wondering if any of you helpful folks could let me know.

Of all I have seen REO Speedwagon puts on the best show and gets the crowd into it. I'd go see them again for sure.
