The Botanical Gardens in Atlanta was a treat. The property is well maintained and offers much to see. The green space is so welcoming. The landscape, the creative displays of animals and plants were amazing. We really enjoyed the Greenhouses which offered all kinds of exotic plants and flowers. I would definitely go again. Admission was $18.75.

A refreshing green space for a nice Sunday afternoon stroll. I loved the flowers, butterflies, and landscaping. A great place to enjoy nature and relax. Such a treat after fighting traffic in the congested Atlanta highway.

Fun to just start walking and trying new turns and paths. The are running a Halloween theme fight now. Christmas is obviously being prepared for. Even this time of year there is... More

Not just another botanical garden. The flower sculptures were exceptional and the scare-crows really livened up the whole experience. The orchid house is the other high point. Some evenings the garden is open and lit - we saw the Christmas lights going up, so that would be worth a trip. They also have live music and drinks on some evenings... More

So, it helped greatly that it was a gorgeous Fall day in Atlanta, but the Botanical Gardens were a beautiful way to spend the day. Fall was starting to bloom and the Halloween decorations were all around the gardens. There was a wedding which added to the ambiance. It was a great walk around and I am looking forward to... More
