Nice to have this garden in our city, adds charm and ambience. Love the unexpected location. Helpful volunteers. Enjoyed the sculptures, esp floating near the waterfall. Rose garden beautiful. Did not care for the inclusion of the spiritual flags; seemed jarring. Will visit again to see more.

I did not know this place even existed. We enjoyed strolling around the gardens on a beautiful fall day. We took our cameras and practiced our photography. Reasonable price, low key entertaining. Looks like it would be a good place for a wedding.

This was a lovely surprise, found courtesy of YELP when we were in the area for a visit to the Southern Museum. There are 32 acres of grounds planted with many many varieties of plants - flowers, trees, shrubs, etc. The rose garden was lovely. The biggest treat was the flower garden path where we encountered half a dozen types... More

I have just recently been introduced to this beautiful hidden treasure. Just a short drive outside of Atlanta you can find this serene garden. The admission price was reasonable for the 13 acres of beautiful and unique plants. There are lots of benches to just sit and enjoy the sights around you. It was not crowded at all and was... More

This is a lovely, surprisingly spacious garden in the midst of a modest subdivision. Give yourself plenty of time. It was not at all crowded when we went in the middle of the week on a summer afternoon, and we read every sign and enjoyed sitting next to the koi pond.

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
