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

Large, beautiful with all wheelchair or stroller accessible paths. I loved that no path seemed to dead end. You could just keep walking as long as you liked or stop at many of the available benches. The Living Worlds exhibit was fun. Like an easy treasure hunt. Great greenhouses with beautiful orchids. You don't feel like you are in the... More

It's very pricey ($20p/p) considering what they have to offer and the facilities...We went toward the end of the day from 5-7:00pm and it was quiet... not a lot color and too simple..not sign on areas, so you go through the areas without knowing where you are...orchids and some figures as part of imaginary world exhibition were nice...parking is not...

Make sure to take in the special exhibitions and Thursday night events in the gardens. The lights at Christmas are one of the largest displays in the world.

Contrary to the past review I loved the giant topiary animals! They really made it an interesting visit, the place is so nice and peaceful to walk around. I don't know much about plants, but just enjoyed the pretty displays at face value. The canopy walk was different and gave you another perspective on the area. I would definitely go... More

There had been a hard freeze and so many of the plants and trees had been majorly damaged and it was very disappointing. I could see that is is a lovely place to visit later on so it is really not an awesome year around garden. They did have a very nice hot house of orchids etc but not enough... More
