I like botanical gardens, and this was possibly my favourite. They have very nice vegetation sculptures and other works of art. Going in the end of the summer I didn't see many flowers, except for the orchids in the green house, but it was still well worth the visit.

Enjoyed this visit to the max. Well groomed grounds and very easy to walk...even after a 3-day conference.

Plan to be there around 4.30 PM because the place looks beautiful with lighting . The place is humid so carry a lot of water.

Very relaxing place. The topiaries were amazing. Never seen any like them before. The children's garden was delightful! I wouldn't recommend the cafe. Boring setting and so so food. The orchid house was stunning. So much to see.

A little pricey. Paid almost $60 for three of us to get in. Beautiful gardens divided up into different sections; i.e., Children's Garden, Hot House, Desert Garden, Walking Gardens, Concert area garden and many more. They excel in creating sculptures in living plants. There were gorillas, butterflies, snakes, fruits, etc., all on a grand scale. When you first enter, you... More

On May 2, I had the good fortune to visit the Atlanta Botanical Gardens with friends that have a membership. We spent the entire day on a leisurely stroll, taking in all the gardens have to offer. What a wonderful experience! Not only did we get to view a wide variety of flora, the conservatory, orchid center, outdoor cafe and... More

Great intro to flaura and fauna for all ages. Enjoyed. Great for kids but do keep them under control.

Visited the gardens when the holiday lights were up. It gets very busy depending on when you go, but even with the crowds it's worth it for the beautiful lights. Very creative and fun for the whole family

My garden companion and I are not exactly plant lovers, but we appreciate the beauty of the rare or unusual flower or foliage. The botanical garden definitely has that - the greenhouses are an especially fun place to visit with all of their tropical bounty. When we visited there were also a couple of really neat special attractions - a... More
