The holiday lights is spectacular for couples and families. The hot cocoa or cider hits the spot. Marshmallow roasting and toy trains to amuse the little ones and beautifully lit topiary sculptures and musically choreographed lighting enchant the adults. Great experience.

We attended the "Scarecrows in the Garden" event on a Thursday evening, and had a fantastic time. Certainly don't consider myself to be a "Gardening Guru", but this event & others at the Botanical Gardens makes it a place for everyone. The night we went, there was a celebrity chef pumpkin carving contest, and several beverage stations scattered throughout the... More

We went for the Thursday morning treasure hunt and my children loved it! We stayed to tour the children's garden and picnic by the frog pond - all natures' blessings to behold and enjoy and teach young children a love for nature. So Awesome!

Such a beautiful exhibition! You should go by yourself, better before ending October, to see all the exhibitions. I really like the way the garden is organized and how big are all the gardens.

Nice place to spend the morning. Best: Butterfly House. There were big wooden statues about insects that children loved to see. Nice walk and athmosphere within the park.

The Atlanta Botanical Gardens are always a pleasure. I can feel my body relax as soon as I walk in. Many different gardens are here, such as Japanese, vegetable, orchid, tropical, desert, and rose gardens. Note the gardens are closed on Mondays. Don't miss the creative scarecrows different Atlanta organizations put up every October. Amazing to me what some people... More

The gardens are of manageable size to enjoy for several hours or all day. We have found the annual membership a very good value because the attractions are worthwhile and varied throughout the year. Lovely way to spend your time and decompress a little with nature.

I was blown away with the beauty of this midtown garden. It offered raised canopy walkways, not to be believed topiairies (see photos) water features, porch swings, great little cafe, water bottle refill stations, plenty of restrooms and a fun little gift shop. There were several air-conditioned spots to duck into in order to cool down. The variety of garden... More

I am so glad that I had a chance to see the Imagination exhibit which features giant plant sculptures of animals. I have never seen anything like it before. These weren't trimmed topiaries, but creations that were towering over the people. The tree canopy walk was so peaceful, I only wish it were longer. Despite going in late September, many... More
