  • This was a very special exhibition at the Botanical Gardens. We went at night to see all of the glass installations lit up. Took our breath away. 
  • This is the Atlanta Botanical Garden and it's a very beautiful place. This place has education in beautiful exhibits. There are things to do like there's a little watering hole with little kids could play with water and there's a little playground too. They have this Big Sky walk which is amazing and you get to see many different types of species of plans especially in the biodomes they have. Then the new exhibit with the glass which is exquisite, who would have thought you can make artwork with glass some of them are really big and unique. They also have little animals within the biodome which is really cool. All the best part I would say is the lady in the garden, WOW to the gardening skill to make that landscape. And right next to it is the Piedmont Park. I recommend you have to see the Atlanta Botanical Garden least once.
  • The Atlanta Botanical Gardens provide an oasis of calm in the center of busy city life. Literal miles of walking paths, some elevated above ground level to give an even more impressive overview of forested greenery, allow for the fascination of every attendee. The edibles garden, in particular, is of note as the Gardens do a regular cooking show with fruits and vegetables taken directly from the garden grounds. Access is a little spendy, but if you think the botanical gardens are likely to be on your regular path of enjoyment, picking up a membership for your family is money well spent.
  • Amazing! The botanical gardens in Atlanta is spectacular! Great exhibits, beautiful paths and facilities. Well worth the price of admission. I would definitely recommend to everyone across the board!
  • For the Gardener/Florist/Botanist/Nature-Lover, this is a pleasant 3-hour tour of interesting plants from several different parts of the world, as well as Southern US favorites. There was a renovation that expanded the Botanical gardens several years ago, and added a much needed parking deck. The exhibits include some indoor space, as well as about 30 acres of wooded walks and special exhibits or plant sculptures. In Nov/Dec they also decorate the place with thousands of lights for the Christmas season, that's worth an extra visit. This is all on the North side of the popular Piedmont park in Atlanta, so if you visit the gardens early, you can spend a few hours walking around the park without moving your car too... Just don't stay too late, when the parking closes.
  • Love this place. It's great to go someplace peaceful in the city to get away from the hustle and bustle. It's also great if you enjoy taking photographs. You simply cannot take a bad photograph there. It's awesome!
