    It's hard to believe that this park is inside the city limits. It r e minds me of NYC's Central Park. Wonderful shaded walking trails, beautiful gardens featuring specific species of flora. It even ha...  more »

    For almost three weeks Memphis, like so many southern states, was caught in the grip of very hot and humid weather. I would have thought that weather with heat index values in the 100 to 105, would ha...  more »

    This is a must go to spot for families. From the Big Back Yard to regularly scheduled activities for the entire family, children gain such an appreciation of nature.  more »

    Everything here was beautiful. Map was easy to follow with help from signs posted at most forks in the trails. The map made everything look much farther apart than it really is so don't worry about walking around the entire area. My only negative was the front desk employee told me they had not turned the card reader on yet and she had no inclination of doing so. Didn't want to knock a star off for one lazy employee. Such a great experience, definitely recommended!

    Beautiful gardens with a beautiful welcome center. Affordable $10 admission and free parking. Don't miss the sculpture garden or the Japanese garden.

    Worth every penny. Directions to entrance confusing without GPS. Trail intersections hand no name markers so map was not user friendly. Types of plants not labeled or labels not place correctly. Plenty of walking. Great staff. Too many high society snobs

    Much larger than I expected. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained with large open spaces for kids to run around. The children 's garden was awesome.

    Beautiful place. As a nanny I have taken many children to The Big Back Yard. Excellent entertainment for young ones. I would love it more if it were easier to keep little ones corralled in smaller areas. There are just too many escape routes without boundaries. Definitely worth a season pass for young families.
