We were lucky to visit here on a warm (75 degree) day in January. Not a lot blooming but it was serene to just breathe in the scent of soil in the sunshine and wander the paths. The orchids in the conservatory are astoundingly beautiful. We had lunch in the in the restaurant which was very good. Would visit again,... More

Visited the gardens on our visit to Atlanta. When we were there they had the Chihuly in the gardens exhibit going on. So cool to see. So much to see and take in while there. We had a little snack in the cafe and continued our garden experience. I would suggest at least a 2 hr. window to enjoy your... More

So excited I was able to catch this exhibit! My boss came to town and she was equally ecstatic! My 10 yo was invited to join and it was such a fantastic time! The opportunity to visit the park is always nice. Chihuly was an EPIC bonus!

The gardens are a great place to go for a date night. You can get some exercise and go at your own pace. No one is there to rush you, so get to know your date. Stop, talk and listen to each other while surrounded by an assortment of beautiful plants. I went during the Chihuly in the Gardens. They... More

Absolutely stunning. Eat before you get there because it is not great food and long waits, but the Light Show is definitely worth going to.

I loved this place so much, I became a member. It was so worth it. I have returned again and again. If yiu are looking for something to do with your mother this is a good idea. If yiu want to take a safe walk for exercise and peace if mind, this place is an even better idea.

The lights were amazing. Our family of 8 adults toured and loved every minute of the visit. We had great weather, not too cold, and it was well worth the visit. We decided it will become and annual event.

Expensive admission at $31 each. A wonderland of electric fusion and nature - water-music, synchronised lighting, stars blinking in the trees, and a fine restaurant (if somewhat over-priced at £30 for a pie). The lighting needs upgrading to concealed and LED - the displays are perhaps all just a little too alike - but we have seen nothing quite like... More

What a joy to experience the lights at the Atlanta Botanical Garden this year! We enjoy the activities all year, but just when the spirit needs a yearly boost, the light show begins. Thousands come every year and enjoy the brilliance of Atlanta's green heart. My grandchildren see it as a yearly rite. Nice job.

The garden is worthy as a big city attraction and is easily one of the top 5 attractions in Atlanta. It lies adjacent to Piedmont Park in Midtown. The Chihuly exhibit was a particularly good paring with the garden and made it really enchanting at night. The canopy walk is best experienced in the daylight, as the dark makes the... More
