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

Only thing to be said it GO! You won't believe how beautiful it is in all four seasons especially in the spring, summer and fall! They have different special events at different times. You won't believe this beautiful botanical garden is right in the heart of midtown. Amazingly beautiful!

We were in Piedmont Park and saw the Botanical Garden. It was a very pleasant visit. The garden has a huge collection of orchids - they are so perfect they almost look fake. The building holding the different climates and plants was very educational. We were too early in the year for the rose garden.

I am happy that I made it. This place is very beautiful. Make sure your camera have enough battery and space because you ll need it! to make many nice photos ... It is a magical place. Really pretty and good to be alone if you like meditative experience.

This was a wonderful place to go and take pictures. There are beautiful topiaries and a wide variety of plants. There's even waterfalls and a green house with tropical plants inside.

I visiting the Atlanta Botanical Garden around the equinox. The Earth Mother wasn't yet planted and few annual flowers were out, but the Gardens are still spectacular. The orchid gardens are especially beautiful and the new pop-art exhibit looks really interesting. Definitely one of my favorite spots in Atlanta.

Tulips were in full bloom. Lots to see and do especially for young children....a little pricey . Bring your lunch and enjoy the picnic areas..also the volunteers are always there to answer questions. This place is big so consider that if you are limited in your walking time.

We got to see the outside gardens (tulips, spring bulbs, etc) in almost perfect bloom, which was so beautiful. The Orchid building was also a treat, with many eager-to-help employees that will answer any question you might have about orchids. We had a great visit.
