What a wonderful afternoon! We strolled through the Atlanta Botanical Garden - and what a beautiful place! Everything is kept so well - so beautifully manicured - and the large plant sculptures are not only amazing, but incredibly beautiful! This would be a place to visit again - most definitely!

Such a beautiful botanical garden with so many sculptures and water features, it's just gorgeous everywhere you look. There is an open air kitchen area where it appears they have cocktail parties and cooking demos. I would go all the time if I lived in Atlanta.

A nice way to spend a few hours...walking thru the exhibits and gardens. It's laid out very nicely...followed the guides instructions on following path. What can I say...the ladies loved it...I'd rather sit and have a beer...too hot on the day we went. I

A visit to the Atlanta Botanical Garden will be one of the most pleasant experiences you will enjoy this summer. Aside from the beautiful plantings you will find an exhibit of staged figures made of living organisms. There are butterflies, snakes, frogs,and other art works that come alive to your senses. In addition, there is an edible garden that is... More

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.

Great experience! Loved getting to see it all! Went with my husband and my parents! It was not so busy to where it was unenjoyable! Definitely want to return for the drinks in the gardens at night!

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.
