  • I had to move to Atlanta 2 years back and people had been recommending this place often and finally 2 weeks before I had a chance this beautiful amazing place From the moment I took the cut to entrance of the garden road I started loving this place . I consider myself an outdoor guy. It's a big garden and u need to do a lot of walking. Every inch of the place I loved it. U can just forget ur busy life and relax under tree canopies and beautiful flora and fauna . Came to this place vey early in the morning when the gardens were open and we were out the garden only by 4pm. I brought a group of 5 adults and infant baby . Only downside with an infant baby in this place there is only one family friendly restroom . Other than that I had no complaints and everyone in the group enjoyed it
  • I love Botanical Gardens! Everything about this place and set up was great!Even during winter, there are still flowers to be seen. I was impressed by how big the property was, the types of plants, and overall sculptures! The greenhouses transform you into a new environment and the edition of the frogs where lovely. My only negative is the price is high (23 with tax) and no student discount.
  • More than worth the cost. A wonderful treasure in the center of downtown Atlanta. The preservation of the trees within walking distance to thriving business communities is a real treat. The foliage blooming throughout the various seasons keeps the visits new and intriguing. The restaurant prices are reasonable for a tourist area.
  • This place is stunning. The creativity fostered is obviously very well thought out: from the children's garden to the Japanese, from Chihuly's works to the "Earth goddess" piece, this was a wonderful treat & a highlight for my relatives visiting from out of town. I'd love to see this every month in the warm season! The staff could be a little friendlier, but it's created a wonderful day for us here.
  • I love this place. The gardens are so beautiful in spring and is typically not crowded. The walking areas are always clean, and it's just so nice to be able to peacefully walk amongst nature for a while.
