Beautiful Place

The gardens are lovely. There was a nice variety of things to see. I loved the glass sculptures in the water fountains. It made for a relaxing morning walk.

We recently attended a wedding rehearsal dinner at the Gardens. The venue is delightful. Seeing the Chihuly sculptures are an added plus. So nice to walk in the gardens and then have a wonderful dinner in the large event room. Beautifully done.

A very unique botanical garden just off downtown in Piedmont Park. An entire building is devoted to orchids, half of the gardens is a forest with a walking path and a suspension bridge. The childrens' garden is in it's own area. There are small gardens for roses, cacti, vegetables, conifers, and Japanese plantings. Unfortunately, the forest area was out of... More

I enjoyed a lovely morning at the Botanical Gardens in early April, and I highly recommend this as a "must do" in Atlanta! The grounds are spacious, and well appointed. There are many areas to relax and enjoy the scenery, and there are, also, educational opportunities. I hope to visit this beautiful garden again!

Had high hopes based on many positive reviews. Orchids are beautiful, roses nice, and many other worthwhile flowers...HOWEVER, Spring perennials were just being planted and a sizable portion of the garden was closed in preparation for a new exhibit. That should have been communicated at check-in. Given the above, the $20 admission fee is not a good value.

Actually it was bad timing when I visit on April 8th. Most of what I see are orchids in green house, some flowers; but not to my expectation for a Botanical garden. Sorry to say that . Busy place though, may be it was spring break.

Visited in early Spring but still much to see, especially in greenhouses. A visit in Summer/Fall would be very good value.

We went to Atlanta Botanical gardens on 12th April. I've loved the tropical plants and cactus in the greenhouse, however some of the outside was disappointing as we were there between seasons. All of the spring flowering bulbs were passed their best with all the summer perrenials and bulbs just starting to appear underneath the foliage. They were also in... More
