The Atlanta Botanical Gardens are a nice place to go to stroll through a variety of garden landscapes. While not as extensive as some botanical gardens I have been to, it's a nice quiet place to relax! We ended up by the season pass so that we can come back at different times of the year. The special summer light... More

Extended family went to see the lift show after dark. Was really AWSOME to see the gardens at a time you don't normally get to go. The light displays were a mixed bag with some just interesting but the enchanted forest display walking over the suspended bridge was AMAZING! Had a great time.

We walked here from the nearest Marta station-a pleasent walk along street with beautirul homes. I have never been a fan of orchids but the orchid display house was beautiful. I took so many pictures especially showing textures and displays. We had a light lunch at "The Cafe Linton's". It was delicous-the cheese platter featuring local artisen cheese and kale... More

Our group (husband & wife in 50s + girls 16 & 12) visited 6/27/2015, arriving at dusk, to see the Bruce Munro Light in the Garden installation. When researching top rated Atlanta attractions to plan a mini vacation associated with college visits, we discovered the special exhibit but were not familiar with the artist, nor did we know exactly what...

From now through October the Light in the Garden show is AMAZING! GO! and then GO AGAIN! It is amazing, beautiful, enchanting! Go at dusk so you can see it after dark. What a LOVELY way to spend a summer evening!

We come to the Botanical Gardens often, with and without special exhibits, so when I saw the Groupon two-fer for the Munro Event I jumped on it. First off, we were hit with a $10 parking fee because of the special event. This was abusive considering it was triple what we would have paid for the hourly rate in the... More

We went to the light show and for the money it was disappointing. The gardens were nice but the light displays were not very interesting and there weren't that many. It was a quiet evening but had hoped for more.

Nicely landscaped, not overwhelmingly large. The Atlanta Botanical Garden is a pleasant stroll if the weather is not too hot. There was not much in bloom during our visit, but very nice otherwise. The numerous sculptures made out of recycled plastic Coke bottles were a nice touch.
