Tucked away oasis and gardens where you would least expect to find one. Very impressed by specimen peices. You must see this garden and old house. Perfect for small quaint weddings of family outing.

I didn't really expect too much, since Kennesaw is a small town, but I was very impressed. Beautiful place with friendly people. The gardens are very well kept, and they have a considerable variety. The bonsai garden alone is worth the price of admission; they have at least 25 different bonsai trees, including a 300-year-old one. The coniferous garden, the... More

This is worth the trip to view beautiful flowers and trees. They have the place organized into different species so more interesting to view them. The people there provide lots of gardening information that can help you if you like gardening. Even a garden area for children. Small entrance fee but it helps support them.

Having relatives or visitors in? Try something different and see the Smith-Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw. We only recently learned about these gardens through Groupon, and what a find! The Gardens are minutes from the highway. Pack a picnic lunch and plan on about two hours of easy walking on well-maintained trails. They have a designated picnic area with tables, a... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this little garden. It has such a pleasant feel. The staff (Shawn) was so helpful and knowledgeable. I hope to come back when everything is in full bloom.

When the flowers are out it is a very beautiful place to walk on the many winding paths. It has a Picnic area and does offer classes.

What a memorable afternoon it was spending our 53rd wedding anniversary touring that lovely garden, with it's nice, well labeled walking paths and interesting and varied sculpture! The only way it could have been improved was if there had been a little coffee shop. After several hours, we would have liked to have had a little place to get "refreshed".

My spouse and I visited early one morning. It was wonderful. I loved seeing all the conifer specimens, the roses, and camelias. but probably the best thing is just learning what will grow in the shade in Northwest Georgia. Some of the plants here are incredibly large and old and others have been planted in the last few years. They... More

I love this place, friendly people, beautiful plants, and they even offer little fun courses. We went to a lecture on owls and bats and it was very interesting! Had a cool "moonlit" tour at the end. A great place to bond with other plant lovers
