Driving through the delightful horse farm country, Gibbs Gardens is just under an hour's drive from Roswell. Landscape Architect Jim Gibbs has spent thirty years developing 220 acres of sixteen well-planned gardens and woodlands that seem like they pop out naturally. The gardens are designed to bring visitors out all during the year (March-Nov.). We had no idea that this was the largest Japanese garden in the U.S with 2000 Japanese maples.. You can't go anywhere without the sounds of water--babbling brooks, waterfalls & meandering streams. It's truly beautiful with weeping willows that grace ponds with coy fish and colorful boulders. The trams now has two new trucks. However, they only go to two spots--the entrance to the Japanese Gardens and the Manor House. Paths are dirt/gravel so a scooter could go on them. Plan a trip by coming to 7 free concerts or cooking events and you'll really have a grand experience. Glad they put an ad in the local paper and had a special Japanese event to lure us out.
