“Great day place to play and relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Just can't say enough great things about this place. Just walked around and took in the stunning beauty of the gardens. Took lots of photos. Had a nice lunch at the cafe and sat outside and enjoyed lunch. A great way to spend a day.

“Wonderful Way to Spend a Sunday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

My wife and I have annual passes to the Gardens and spend every Sunday there during the season. We enjoy the wonderful sandwiches and salads prepared by Mary's Bread Basket as we lunch in the garden.
I use a cane for walking but found that I can navigate the trails easily.
This is a true treasure that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

“Beautiful Way to Spend an Afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Gibbs Gardens continues to impress the uninformed about this beautiful place in Ball Ground, Georgia. Though the entrance is unassuming, once you get though the gates you realize someone had a grand vision and worked for years to bring it to reality. It's hard to comprehend the time, energy and effort that it must have taken to plant ALL the flowers, trees, and scrubs.
Great place for family pictures. A tram is available for those who prefer to ride instead of stroll.

“Great place to Walk Around & see Beautiful Flowers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Jim Gibbs has created a fantastic garden. There are several different themed areas. My favorite is the Japanese Garden. Great plantings and water features. Strongly recommend viviting. If you want to try to see all of the gardens on 1 visit, plan on spending all day. The onsite cafe has a very limited menu, but the food is very good.
