This place was fabulous. There were so many different places to go and see, and OMG! I wish I had the grandkids with me!! The kids garden had more things to do with kids than the zoo!! Everything was so well maintained, and beautiful. I wish I could live next door and walk here every morning.

In town to visit Graceland, we were ready for a change of pace after so much music. This well maintained garden had a variety of settings, from an imaginative childrens` Big Backyard to a rose garden, and plenty of space, sculptures and fountains to enjoy.

The admission fee was reasonable and it was a great place to visit if you are a plant enthusiast. Didn't bring our kids, but it looked like they had a nice spot for them.

I was in Memphis for business and had one opportunity to tour the gardens. It was misting heavily when I drove to the gardens and stopped the moment I arrived. Unfortunately my luck did not hold out. It was worth the trip anyway! I walked from garden to garden, seeking refuge under the canopy of trees when the rain came... More

Very pretty grounds, lots of flowers and trees to see. Map is awful and very little directional signs so it's hard to tell where you're at most of the time, but still fun! Walkways can be long, bring water and sunscreen!

We loved this as we like walking around and taking in the scenery. The wife loved feeding the fish, and we both thought the park was very well kept, and everyone there was very nice. If you want a nice quiet down day.. in a beautiful setting this is it.

There is a large child friendly area. There is a water aspect, so have the kids suit up on a hot day for some water play time. The garden is very handicap friendly with its paved sidewalks. If you are up to it, you can walk 5 miles seeing all the exhibits. It took us about 3 hours to cover... More

Wow! What a comprehensive review and great feedback on your day at the Garden. Not sure I could walk 5 miles in 3 hours...maybe I need to leave my desk more often. LOL I will pass along your comment about the map, so that we can double-check placement on everything next time we revise that. Was that our app map,... More

When the summer weather cooperates, this is a great place to see a concert. Great food available, beer, and soft summer grass to sit on,

My husband and I enjoyed strolling through the various gardens. There were several benches and swings under shade to rest throughout. My favorites from this visit were resting in the shade of a pagoda covered with grapevines bursting with fruit, meandering through the Japanese gardens, feeding the koi and turtles, (hint..buy more than one bag of fish food) and the...

I took 6 kids here ages 15-6 for a fun morning with something to do. They enjoyed the kids area, "My Big Backyard" greatly. The playhouses were a particular hit! The rest of the gardens did not hold their interest until we got to the Japanese pond. There were literally HUNDREDS of fish jumping over one another to get the... More
