Memphis Botanic Garden strives to enhance lives by connecting people
with nature, increasing awareness and appreciation of our environment.
This 96-acre property includes 23 specialty gardens, which provide an
in-depth look into various families of plants, flowers, and trees.
My Big Backyard family garden offers a place for jumping, splashing, digging, creating, and discovering the joys of time spent outdoors. The renowned Seijaku-en, Japanese Garden of Tranquility, is a popular attraction, with its recognizable red drum bridge and unique cultural features.
Memphis Botanic Garden serves over 43,000 school-aged children annually through organized education programs, offering them the opportunity to get outdoors and learn through hands-on activities and nature play. Students come from 192 area schools, including 102 Memphis public schools where 83% of the children qualify for lunch assistance programs, reaching an under-served population through our educational programs.
The Garden offers a year-round schedule of special events and programs, including the Live at the Garden Summer Concert Series, monthly wine tastings, family events, art exhibits, classes, workshops, and more. Hosting approximately 225,000 visitors each year, the Garden provides Mid-Southerners and those traveling to the area a tranquil natural get-away right in the heart of Memphis.
Located at 750 Cherry Road, Memphis, TN, the Botanic Garden is open year round. Visit the Memphis Botanic Garden web site for additional information.
