“Lovely!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is where I recommended my nieces' fiance to "pop the question". He did so at the Day Chapel which is situated in a beautiful wooded area.
Great date place and its where most locals take out of town guest. No one is ever disappointed after strolling through the gardens.

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is a great stop if you're in Athens. The park is completely free and is a wonderful place to take a walk. There are numerous sections including an edible garden, international garden, greenhouses, herb garden, and many more. There are also trails through the woods if you want to take a hike. We have also been to the Easter brunch which was a wonderful experience.

“Unique Gem in Athens”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

The Botanical Garden of Georgia is a place that I go at least once a week to run. There are plenty of trails to run on around the gardens. Other times I go just to look around at the beautiful gardens.
