Fee is a bit expensive, but so are many of the attractions in Atlanta. At the beginning I felt we just had wasted our money but oohhh, we found the orchids sections and it has been the best one I have ever seen. Just for that this parks is worth the visit and fee. As well, there are some funky... More

The Atlanta Botanical Gardens puts on a fabulous concert series. I have been to two concerts there and have been please with the small, intimate setting. I will say that since specific low lawn chairs are required, it is somewhat difficult to see if you are toward the back. It is relatively crowded and difficult to get around once the... More

Nine family members made a spur-of-the-moment visit during a family reunion, and I'm so glad we did! Only a few of us were avid gardeners, but there was enough to see and do for everyone to count the visit a "win." A couple stopped for a bite and a drink while the rest of us wandered about, enjoying the exhibits.... More

Love the spring flowers. The sky walk is a bit unnecessary. There are also some nice spots to chill out. The park is inside Piedmont Park so the location is great for a day in Midtown Atlanta.

I love the Gardens! I enjoy going every different season. It's always changing. The Orchid house is my favorite. You go at your own pace. Good shade in the HotLanta summer. Nice in the Spring and Fall. The Christmas lights are Amazing!

We had a few hours to kill and decided to check out the Botanical Garden on a whim. We were blown away! We were not expecting it to be so big and have so many different things to walk through and see. There's one area where you feel like you've stepped into the rain forest. At first we thought admission... More

Everywhere you walk, you feel at peace and one with nature. The gardens are amazingly gorgeous. The artistry of the Imaginary Worlds sculptures is so cool. The topiaries come alive as if the animal is right next to you. The Fuqua Orchid Center is a highlight for all garden lovers. I never knew that there were so many varieties of... More

Kept having to remind myself that even though it was raining, it was Saturday and my daughter and I felt like we were the only ones there! Between the heavy bouts of rain, we were educated by Ann, one of the volunteers, in the visitors center. Super friendly and nice lady!! It was my 11 yr old daughter's first visit... More
