I just love going to this place whenever i am in Atlanta. and it is right next door to Piedmont Park and very close to the mid-town restaurants, so you can do all of these. The garden is so well maintained with various types of exhibits.

This outdoor light-based installation by British artist Munro is created from hundreds of miles of optic fibers and is truly beautiful to see at night when everything is like a city of sparkling lights. The amount of work to arrange these lights is mind boggling. Arrive before dusk so that you can also see the gardens in daylight and don't... More

We came at night for the "night of lights". It was spectacular and I felt as though I was not at the gardens, but in a mystery place with such beautiful lights. The garden never disappoints. Be sure to go at the holidays - so preety.

The gardens are in the middle of midtown, adjacent to Piedmont Park (also a great place to visit) surrounded by restaurants. My most recent visit was at night for the Bruce Munro: Light in the Garden exhibit, which i would highly recommend along with dinner at the Cafe at Linton's (inside the gardens).

A nice way to spend part of your day. There is parking available for a fee. Kids garden is fun for little ones. The night of lights is very entertaining. Can get rather crowded at Christmas time, but the flow of traffic is good.

I have been there numerous times! We actually bought the year pass. The place is so beautiful and has so much to meander throughout, that we wanted to keep coming back. the orchids are astounding, and if you go during Christmas you can eat Smores around the campfires whilst drinking hot chocolate. the kids love the toy trains that go...
