  • Very large and beautiful garden (few hundred acres), worth the walk. Streams, small wood bridges, small stone bridges, creeks, ponds, all beautifully landscaped. I was amazed they still had blooming plants in Autumn. Fantastic relaxing walk with bathrooms, places to eat, and drinking fountains. You can buy water, food, snacks, etc. Wonderful gift store and the entire staff is super helpful and friendly. Ball Ground is worth the drive from ATL and the scenic drive on the twisty roads is alone worth the voyage. Ball Ground has some neat stores and even a small Cajun eatery
  • A beautiful place to walk and see lovely gardens in all the seasons. My son and I went for a day - and immediately bought 2 seasons passes. It's about 90 minutes from our house but we manage to get there pretty often - it's worth the drive!!
  • You can truly appreciate nature in this mix of wilderness meets very orderly and picturesque gardening. You would have no idea such a beautiful fairy land is hidden in Ball Ground, GA! The Japanese Gardens were by far my favorite.
  • An awe inspiring place. If you like nature, come prepared to spend time and stop often to soak it all in.
  • One of our most favorite places in North Georgia! Jim Gibbs has created a beautiful garden, his passion clearly shows and the staff are wonderful. As you stroll about the various gardens you can easily forget everything else while you're there!
