If you go to the Garden in October (late fall or winter months) be sure to ask at the front what areas are in bloom. We didn't and didn't find the areas until we questioned it as we were leaving. Therefore, we kind of felt that we wasted time and money visiting.

Even though late September is not exactly the right time to go, since most everything has already dropped their blooms, it was still very worth going and appropriate for the entire family. Through out the entire garden were education stations for children and they seemed totally absorbed and delighted in them. You can meander through on outdoor "house" complete with... More

The botanic garden is a great place to go escape for a day. with all of its beautiful plants and sights, it's one of my favorite places in memphis to go when im stressed. admission is fairly inexpensive, and you can get a membership if you go there frequently enough. It's where I'm getting married in less than a month... More

Spent a wonderful fall Sunday afternoon here. The garden is inexpensive, easy to get to, not overwhelming in size. For its size, the variety is abundant. This place is calm, peaceful, beautiful and informative. Perfect for all ages. This would be an ideal place to host a wedding or social gathering. We are looking forward to returning in two weeks...

Great Location for groups up to 200. we had a small conference there and it was very easy to load in (using side door to street) and it worked out well.

We'll worth the time! The children's garden is creative and enjoyable for both adults and children. Every turn brought a new surprise. Highly recommend!

It was a sunny day but with so many sitting places, gazebos etc it made this visit well worth the effort. The koi pond was a treat to kids and adults alike. The pictures don't do the gardens justice. I would love to visit this place again when everything is blooming.

It probably was because we were there at the end of the summer but things looked à bit run down. Some paths were overgrown with végétation. Still the place is impressive, with a nice place for kids. We saw the biggest spider in the sensory garden.

Thank you for your feedback! This spring and summer have provided perfect growing conditions, which is great for our lush green spaces, but also means our gardeners and volunteers have a hard time keeping up with the growth. Each season does look and feel very different, so we would love for you to come back and see us again. More

I stopped into the Memphis Botanic Garden for a short visit. Just off the welcome center, you walk through a small sculpture garden and out into a nicely laid out rose garden of concentric rings encircling a splashing fountain. It is lovely and they have done a nice job of mixing "butterfly magnet" flowers in with the roses creating a... More

Wow! Thank you for sharing your experience and especially lovely description of our newly-renovated rose garden! Our designers and gardeners worked hard to create a space that would be beautiful and full of life even when the roses are not in bloom. So glad to hear that people are enjoying it. Hope you get back to Memphis often and are... More
