Memphis Botanic Garden is a beautiful piece of nature in an incredible city! (It just proves you don't have to travel all the way into the country to be surrounded by nature!)
Memphis Botanic Garden is 96 amazing acres of beautiful gardens (23 speciality ones to be exact!), which give the whole family a look at some of the incredible species of trees, flowers and plants we have on this planet!
The gardens are hugely popular with families, so it's only fitting that Memphis Botanic Garden have an area perfect for them! My Big Backyard is THE place for kids to splash, dig, jump, create and discover! There are over a dozen areas in the Big Backyard, and each one is designed to spark discovery and excitement in those little ones.
Kids can learn all about the important roles that plants play in your own home, and a 'leaping lawn" perfect for those kids with extra energy! The Seedling Circle lets those little sprouts explore all the colors and shapes, and the treetop adventure gives kids a birds eye view of the Garden where they can learn all about those feathered friends!
The spaces change with the seasons too, so there will be something new to keep heading back to!
The speciality gardens include a beautiful Seijaku-en - the Japanese Garden of Tranquility - is a popular attraction, introducing kids to a whole new culture, and there is even a Herb Garden which is one of the largest in the nation!
With family activities, classes, workshops and even art exhibits, the Memphis Botanic Garden has a host of garden fun....yet so much more than a garden!
