There is always something to see here. The holiday lights are wonderful and the concerts in the park are fun. The gardens themselves are beautiful and different exhibits are displayed throughout the year.

As a world traveller, I always make a point of seeing the gardens in new and exotic places. The Atlanta Botanical Garden is definitely in the world class. The extensive amount of plant materials that grow naturally In the southeast are beautifully and imaginatively displayed and maintained. The love, dedication of the staff and volunteers are everywhere obvious. New displays... More

I always feel like a character in the book as I stroll through the park. Starting out in the skyway gives you the feeling that you are up in the trees and you are able to enjoy the various exhibits from a different perspective. The seasonal events and special exhibits are always spectacular but my personal favorite is the Fuqua... More

The lights at the garden are spectacular. That aside the flowers and plants in the spring are something to behold.

The Botanical Gardens is a large location that provide an insight into different garden environments and beautiful foliage. The flowers, of course, vary by season and the Gardens do try to present new and interesting displays, like the large cobras, and characters last year. The individual displays are not that large but give a nice opportunity to see the varied... More

I have not been here in a while. The gardens keep getting better reviews all the time and from what I hear the trip is worth it. It is not close to public transportation so a cab or car is necessary.

For a city the size of Atlanta you might expect a larger Botanical Garden. There are special exhibits much of the time that add to the experience. The highlight for me was the huge orchid exhibit in the Fuqua Conservatory. The gardens are small enough to go for frequent strolls if you live nearby and are a member.

We love visiting the Atlanta Botanical Garden. My kids loved the visiting exhibit of "Imaginary Worlds" from Montreal. They can't wait to see the new larger-than-life sculptures this summer. The wandering paths and various sections of the garden are a delight. Don't forget to bring a towel and change of clothes in the summer for the kids. The sunflower fountain... More
