I've been to a couple of great botanical gardens and from what I had heard, I had great expectations for this one. Unfortunately it was a bit of a let down. The grounds are nice enough, but it lacks the wow-factor. Also a lot of the exhibits were closed down for renovation, without any reduction in the admittance fee (which... More

The entire facility is beautiful, even in late October! I also loved the living sculptures, especially the unicorn, butterfly, and two cobra. Well done! I would give this site 5 stars with one exception. I took a guided tour that I wanted to abandon 5 minutes in, but I felt too bad to do it. She led us around for... More

It was very interesting to see all the plants and trees cut into shapes of animals and fruit. Very well done, I highly recommend it.

So much to see. Went with a friend and later with my daughter. Everyone was enthralled with the trails and different flauna.

Great setting for a wonderful early fall music event. We pre-ordered food & it was easy & good. The perfect weather helped make it a fun evening.

I visited Atlanta during the fall season so I went to see the Botanical Gardens and I was not disappointed! There were a lot of temporary exhibits and special Halloween decorations. The giant sculptures were amazing, especially the one of the Earth Goddess. The bridge along the treetops was a delight! The coffee shop is a great stop for refreshments... More

I'm not that into nature and gardening (wife is), but this has amazing figures constructed from wire forms covered with different plants and flowers over a vast network of paths and groves, with in season cooking demonstration of vegetables, etc. grown there, and a marvelous indoor atrium with myriad orchids. Allow a minimum of 2-3 hours to explore it all... More

This garden is good for a nice two hours afternoon walk. However, you should not expect too much. I liked the Fuqua Conservatory which includes the rainforest and the orchid garden. Other sections were not so remarkable or not in a good shape, such as the rose garden and the Japanese garden. The Storza woods across the street which are... More

This is a nice place to go out on a nice date with someone or even take your children if you have them. It's very fragrant and there is something for everyone to see.

I had guests from out of town and was looking for ways to entertain them. I had wanted to visit the botanical gardens and decided to buy a membership and take them there. It makes sense to join if you plan to visit more than once. The gardens are fantastic. There is so much to see that I recommend the... More
