  • Our son had his wedding at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. It was amazing, the setting was beautiful, the food was fantastic and the garden personnel made us feel like the garden was there only for our...  more »
  • Lei so many good reviews that finally ended up disappointing me, I found that there were very few flowers, and many parts in construction or restoration. Quite expensive and one is warm to little.

  • Beautiful botanical garden, lovely layout and design. The greenhouses are very impressive, with a phenomenal collection of interesting orchids and other tropical plants. I did find the areas of manicured gardens to be slightly more limited than other gardens I've visited, though one area was closed for a private event, so that may have influenced my impression. Overall, a lovely garden to visit.
  • Beautiful! My kids love to visit. Very child friendly and great children's garden. Fun play fountain during the summer. Just be aware that they are Very strict about you bringing in food. Also, the food they serve is good but expensive.
  • Always a good time! Love the special events here.A great way to get away in the city and spend some time with nature. On a hot day kids can play in the splash ground. Orchids are nice. The price was reasonable and the employees were very helpful. Everything about this place is stunning.
  • Beautiful gardens just minutes from the downtown hotels. Parking is much better than what it used to be. Stunning blooms everywhere you look. The restaurant on site is quite affordable with quality foods and fresh vegetables most which have been growing on site. Be prepared to walk while many paths are handicap accessible there are several areas with stairs to access certain garden features.
  • Went to the gardens for Orchid Daze. It was lovely and there were even orchids for sale. These gardens are beautiful and packed with so many things to see. It could take 4 hours or more to walk through the grounds. Staff is friendly too. I truly enjoy going.
