Go at night - and park inside the garden

Even though there is a parking charge to park inside the garden, avoid the incredibly-long line of cars attempting to park on the streets and walk over. Just pay the fee and park... read more

The Orchid collection is one of the most extensive collections I have ever seen. The flowered sculpture was very impressive and the flowers throughout the grounds were interesting and well kept.

The Botanical Gardens are great no matter what time of year you visit. There is always something blooming. In the summer they have nighttime events. Everything is reasonably priced however I am not a fan of paying for parking. But I guess that's the price you pay for attractions!

This is great for families and fun place to go on a date. Bring your camera because you will marvel at the creative displays of flowers. Time your visit with their jazz series for a perfect night out with food and wine available. Loved the display of the seasons.

This garden was well laid out with walking paths. I really liked the various Chihuly sculptures here and there. My favorite spot was the orchid house--so many beautiful varieties!

Always enjoy hitting Piedmont Park, and then making it over to the Botanical Gardens. All of the gorgeous plant sculptures, and the educational material...make for a wonderful family outing.

It is a great place to go for Visitors and Locals alike not just once but Multiple times. There are the Natural paths to walk on and they have plants from Around the World. A greenhouse, and other fun things to see and do.
