Sunday evening stroll
Oct 2021 • Friends
Absolutely beautiful. The weather was nice the atmosphere was nice. The garden is well kept with so many flowers/tree and greenery to view. This was well worth the money spent. The food was good (a little pricey but good). Highly recommend for couples just to be able to get out and enjoy a nice evening stroll and conversation.

Mediocre for the price
Oct 2021 • Couples
I gave two stars for location. Visiting ABG on
October 8 was a waste of time. There is nothing in bloom and the the exhibits/grounds could use some cleaning which is understandable because of fall but for 27.00 pp that is a rip off. Basically we paid to enter then I had to pay for drinks and snacks. I saw nothing appealing to the eye. There is an exhibit that is coming “fall 2021” and it needs work. It was filled with dirt and debris. I was very disappointed. I hope the holiday lights will be different and the gardens in the spring.

It was OK.

I can only review what I experienced on my trip in late September. I have no doubt it would be better in the spring. Anyway.... First, I would not recommend the timed tickets. We had tickets for 4 pm and decided to see if we could enter at 1 pm because we completed our first attraction more quickly than expected. We were told we could not enter before 3:45 pm (even thought the garden was not crowded) unless we upgraded our tickets to a "Flex' ticket for $5 per each (which we did). With the virus, I understand the reasoning for timed tickets. I am just letting everyone know that it was not crowded (at least on a Thursday) and that you could easily walkup (with no waiting) and purchase a ticket for immediate entry. That way, you don't have to worry about arriving on time.

As far as the garden, there are two main sections. The first section we visited had very few flowers (again, it is fall). I was feeling like I spent $56 for two individuals to walk on a concrete path through the woods. The second section did have more flowers, but for me, it was not worth the price. I should note, that I am not a "flower person". My partner seemed to enjoy the gardens much more than I did. I just didn't feel like what I saw was worth the price of admission.

Enormous botanical garden with fabulous plants. Easy to spend two hours here enjoying the wide variety of beautiful flowers and trees. Nice cafe on site as well.

Highlight of the trip
Aug 2021
took an uber to the gardens because I wasn't sure how to get into downtown Atlanta in my car without having a heart attack. The entire trip was a DREAM! Uber drivers were great and the gardens were beyond my wildest imagination. The glass flower sculptures throughout the gardens were mesmerizing and the symphony playing strings on a Sunday evening -- exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you!

Best Attraction in Atlanta
Aug 2021 • Friends
If you only do one attraction while in Atlanta, make it the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. We spent half a day here and loved every minute of it.
Hint, download PictureThis from the App Store for instance plant identification.

A walk in the trees
Jul 2021 • Family
We visit Atlanta often and had never visited the ABG. I'm sad we waited so long. It is beautiful. We went in the cool of the evening and loved the walk through the trees and the music in the background.

There are so many wonderful displays, it is easy to see why so many couples made it a date night. The evening we were there they had cocktails and live music.

The edible garden, children's area and the orchid conservatory were highlights of our visit. Our group from 1 to 75 had a great time.

Clean and accessible, a lovely evening in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Botanical Garden is one of the best Botanical Garden's I have ever visited. There is so much to see and the grounds are immaculate. This is a great way to spend an afternoon in Atlanta.

Gorgeous Plants and Gardens
Jun 2021
The garden provided an amazing diversity of plants and flowers, all exhibited in a beautiful manner. The Chihully glass sculptures were an additional attraction. It took several hours to tour the garden, but they were well worth spending.
