Behind the Visitor's Center is My Big Backyard, a children's area. The Japanese Garden has a lagoon with Koi and Canadian Geese. There are many specialty garden areas and numerous trails. We walked about 2 miles and didn't see everything.

One of the most beautiful spots in Memphis. The gardens are beautiful. In the summer the rose gardens are the most beautiful you'll ever see. Follow the trail to the lake and feed the fish. The big back yard is excellent for children. Its one of the most romantic places in Memphis to go. Beautiful weddings are held here too.

Came here on visit to extended family who'd recently moved to the Memphis area. We all had a terrific visit, including the young girl in our party. My wife and I are Missouri Botanical Garden members, so we were admitted without charge due to the reciprocal agreement between most of the country's botanical gardens. We enjoyed a pleasant and informative... More

A wonderful time for the entire family. The children's Backyard is outstanding. A walk through the gardens is beautiful and an oasis in the middle if the city. You won't be disappointed!

I visited during a wedding reception being held inside the main building. Beautiful artwork was on display, and in other portions of the facility there were some unusual geological displays as well as awesome gardens, fountains, and art. I will definitely return for another visit soon.

This is a beautiful place. So peaceful and beautiful no matter what time you visit. I have been to the Botanic Garden about 10 times now and it is a great place to stroll and see the various plants and some wildlife. (ducks and geese) There is a nice little restaurant with great food and service as well.

The Big Backyard is great for kids, and the grounds are really beautiful. We also enjoyed feeding the koi.

This is a great place to go if you enjoy a nice long walk in beautiful surroundings. The various gardens were very well done. There is also a large garden and play area for kids that is really cool. We spent about 2 hours there and saw pretty much everything.

We were there in September and the weather was very hot and due to heat not able to enjoy it as much. Most of the flowers had past but the scenery in certain parts were very beautiful and creative. I would suggest visiting early in the morning or later in the afternoon. There were a number of flowers whose names... More

Great evening of music. You can bring your law chairs, a small cart to carry them and you food and beverages to enjoy the outdoors, music, food and friends.
