The Atalanta Botanical gardens are an absolute must if visiting the City. When we went they had giant flower sculptures of gorilla's, animals and art works. Beautiful tropical greenhouses and well tended gardens throughout. Reasonably priced with a great shop. Take the time to walk - you go through some lovely Southern houses.

We visited Atlanta in June and this was the highlight of the trip! My husband is a horticulturalist and he was very impressed. Between the two of us we must have taken 300 photos. The plants were very well maintained and exude healthy vibrant colors. There were so many different varieties, it was truly amazing! The plant sculptures were fantastic... More

Decided to take a look at the Botanical Garden and wasn't disappointed. It had just rained so it was fairly empty which was great. This would be a great visit for anyone looking for ideas for their own yard or for someone who just enjoys all that nature has to offer. Pretty amazing natural sights.

My wife and I visited a few months ago, in the springtime. This is not what one might expect in the middle of a bustling metropolis. Lush gardens flank you as you enter the venue. There are indoor and outdoor portions, teeming with exotic and local plant life. The setting is both intriguing for botanists and enthusiasts, and romantic for... More

I visited the garden during Aug 2014 and found it one of the main attraction of the Atlanta. The garden is welll maintained and there are lot of plants from various countries, some of time are kept under temperature controlled environments and gives you a real rain water forest.

We visited on a rare, not humid summer day. Everything was beautiful! Easy walkable trails took us through the woods and formal gardens past many delightful "animals" made from plant materials. The greenhouses are also a definite don't-miss.

...but crowded parking deck is a problem when leaving.Venue food and wine options (no outside items allowed) are mixed. Very reasonable bottle prices for surprisingly good wine, but long lines for uneven quality food made it not so good overall. Open seating on lawn to hear music is fine, unless you have to get up in the middle of the... More

Well worth a few hours to enjoy the gardens. Lots of shady trails to walk on during a hot day. The plant sculptures are fun to find and are amazing works of art. It's a beautiful, well cared for park.
