We travel to Atlanta several times a year and love the botanical gardens. The Chihuly exhibit was fantastic.

Went and visited the gardens while in town and we were not dissapointed. The grounds were so well maintained and there was so much to see and do. The kids area was also a lot of fun and kept my little one entertained for quite awhile.

Beautiful gardens and art exhibits with some features for the kids. Relaxing way to spend an afternoon if your kids are a little older and don't get bored easily - they have a kids' section with a playground, fountain play, construction play, and bridges. Plenty of shade and food available.

This has to be one of my favorite botanical gardens in the country! The sky walk, cascade gardens and orchid house are a must see. The Chihuly exhibit makes it all that much more beautiful.

Very modern and loved the Chihuly in the Garden. We went during the day with extremely humid weather. Only wish we had gone at night. They were installing lighting everywhere so I imagine it would be a whole other experience at night. They even have a kids area which is a nice touch. They're still working on expanding that area....

I went to the gardens to see my favorite Glass artist Dale Chihully and I was not disappointed, the gardens are so beautiful, since I'm new to the southeast I have never seen the different types of foliage and plants that grow here, It was well worth the cost of admission..

Wonderful that there's loads of outdoor beauty that's made accessible for those with mobility issues! Large smooth paths and plenty of benches make this place work even for those who aren't hikers. A serene place to be. Neat area for kids to enjoy too. Wish we had more topiary sculptures like the earth goddess and the dog, but still there's... More

The Chilhuli exhibit was beautiful at night, but most of the path wasn't lit. It almost seemed dangerous in places where we walked. Most of the people seemed lost much of the time including us. They gave you a map, but there were no direction markers on the path, and it was so dark that you couldn't read the map... More

We visited the gardens yesterday morning , primarily to see the Chihuly exhibit. It was nice that it opened at 9 so we could go while it was still a bit cooler. The gardens were lovely, and so well maintained. The addition of the Chihuly art installation made it simply breathtaking. There were many whimsical additions in the gardens that... More

Been here so many times I am starting to lose track! I love the different events they stage throughout the year with the Chihuly glass being my favorite so far. The staff we come across are always wonderful and the garden clean. Come early so you can take your time and wear good walking shoes (the place is huge!)
