As we started the journey to enter the canopy walk we were awestruck to look at the evergreen wonderland of huge, tall trees welcomed us. The colorful and artificial lighting add value to the salubrious environ. The lady statue made of 1800 live plant spicies is a marvel and it is a beauty well preserved.The varities of plant spicies and... More

This is a spectacular place to visit in Metropolitan Atlanta. The gardens are beautiful and well thought out to provide a lengthy, but doable walking experience. The recent Chihuly installation adds to the already spectacular vistas. The Orchid exhibit is one of the best I have seen. Definitely a "go to" place.

I went for the orchid exhibit and man they were awesome. Although it seemed like I caught the tail end of it or something because there were only two small sections with them. I still enjoyed it. If you're thinking of a wedding here, make sure you take a visit first because the venues are a lot smaller than they... More

We visited for the Christmas Holiday = excellent displays of Beauty & Grace! Seasonal herbs & veggies used in restaurant that served excellent food = great value for the money. Singing happens when you least expect it, even coming from you. Many photo ops and " the spirit of the holiday" grabs you from the parking lot through out your... More

It was a beautiful visit at the garden during the Chihuly exhibit during the say. Prepare to do lots of walking. There is a children's garden that is currently fairly small but with renovations going on. There is a splash pad area, have swim wear for your kids to enjoy especially during this summer heat.

We attending the night version of Chihuly in the Garden and it was really cool. The glass sculptures look really great lit up at night. On the down side - you don't get the full awesomeness of the gardens since you can't really see much of the vegetation. I'd like to see the gardens again in the day time so... More

The Atlanta Botanical Garden is a special place to visit both day and night. The Chihuly glass exhibit makes the Garden unique at this point in time. Lintons in the Garden now provides both pick-me-up food and fine dining at reasonable prices.

Went for the night exhibit, just thinking it would be so cool to see the glass works illuminated. It was worth the trip and then some! What a fabulous exhibit in a beautiful setting this is. I intend to return since it is impossible to absorb 20 huge installations in one visit. Chihuly has changed glass art forever with his... More

If you like being in nature in beautiful surroundings this is a great place. I've been here with varying types of groups, we always had a great time. The kids' area could be improved a little, I'm not sure how, it's hard to keep track of your kids because it's easy to hide etc. but we managed. The kids' projects... More
