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. Our Herb Garden is one of the largest in the nation, and offers unique opportunities for programming and visitor experience.
Most recently, Memphis Botanic Garden has completed renovations of the Sculpture Garden and Rose Garden, both areas that provide beautiful settings for visitors to enjoy, as well as scenic spots for special events and weddings.
Memphis Botanic Garden serves over 40,000 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. We invite you to join us for a year-round schedule of special events and programs, including the Live at the Garden Summer Concert Series, monthly wine tastings, family activities, art exhibits, classes, workshops, and more.
Memphis Botanic Garden is a member of the American Horticultural Society, which provides our members with free admission to reciprocal gardens across the country. For a list of reciprocal gardens, visit ahsgardening.org.
