I had heard of Gibbs Gardens before and finally went recently. Until you experience it firsthand words cannot express how large and expansive the gardens are which makes it very much worth the trip to visit. I’m a fast walker and ended up spending a couple hours walking around and still didn’t see everything. There is a mixture of what is planted ranging from Japanese Gardens to tulips to Monet Gardens tribute. If you visit the website you can see recent photos showing what is blooming and a calendar of highlights throughout the year. So much beauty. I ended up getting a membership before I left since there are different floral events that change the experience over months. Loved it!

Response from Charlie F, General Manager at Gibbs Gardens
Responded 6 days ago
Dear sOuthernbelle16: We appreciate you visiting Gibbs Gardens, and are always interested in our guests' candid feedback. We thank you for your 4-Star rating, but I would be amiss if I did not respond to your comments and offer some explanations. Regarding the gravel, it is a necessary part of Gibbs Gardens. As you know already, we are located in the foothills of the Georgia mountains and, as such, there are steps we have to take to "partner" with Mother Nature. The gravel is a must-have because any other surface would wash away or raise the radiant temperature of the Gardens to an unacceptable level if the parking areas, for example, were asphalted. With COVID-19 still an issue, we must protect our associates and guests from the virus by strictly adhering to preventive protocols that have been in place since last March. This includes limiting the number of people who utilize our restrooms at any one time, thus the wait. The tables were purposely removed and will remain absent until the CDC lifts its 6-foot distancing guideline. I would like to hear from you (simply e-mail info@gibbsgardens.com) to understand how our Parking Operations were "not helpful" and what type of assistance was missing from your perspective as far as aid to those who are not ambulatory. I look forward to your reply. Cordially, Charlie Frankel General Manager

We happened to be there on one of their busiest days, but still plenty of room to move around. The tulips were beautiful, as were various other flowers.

We just miss the daffodils but the tulips are beautiful. Lovely maintain grounds, looks like there’s always something in the season. Takes about an hour and a half to see the grounds well worth it. Only downside was exiting as a sort of a out-of-the-way walk

A first time visitor with good expectations. Actually much better than expected. Excellent execution from the creator, not surprising an educated professional. As great as it is the obvious generation of more attractions is exciting. It will never be mundane. Some of the best money I've spent. Wish we were closer so we could be a "member". Every season will be spectacular!!! You will not be disappoint. We were there 3+ hours and did not see all. Cherry blossoms, daffodils and tulips oh my!
