Atlanta’s pride and joy – the botanical gardens are stunning. Founded in 1996, the gardens have slowly and steadily accumulated a fantastic collection of plants spread over a number of smaller themed gardens. These include the Japanese Garden, the Rose Garden, the Storza Woods, the Upper Woodland, the Children’s Garden, the Fuqua Orchid Centre and the Fuqua Conservatory.
Spread out over 30 acres, the Garden hosts some fantastic exhibitions and displays throughout the year; these have included Big Bugs and Killer Plants, Sculpture in Motion (mosaiculture), Locomotion and Imaginary Worlds: Plants larger than life. Wintertime, the Garden hold an enchanting light show featuring over 1.5 million LED.
Another feature is the Garden Expansion Plan that focused around five principles, sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

Such pretty views! The flowers smelt AMAZING, the fruits were also so Interesting to see them start to bloom. The edible garden was my favorite! The smell of rosemary, thyme, and chives were all so delightful. Definitely recommend not the being younger kids, the older kids would much enjoy. Hey, might as well bring grandparents. We all know they love to garden.
Absolutely beautiful! A wonderful way to get you in the Christmas spirit. A great way to spend the evening with family and friends of all ages. Wear comfortable shoes and warm clothes as this is a self guided, outdoor walking tour. There are fire pits along the walking paths to warm up by. They have spots throughout to purchase a hot chocolate or hot toddy to help keep you warm as well. Highlights include the Orchestral Orbs, tunnels of lights, the Ice Goddess, the model trains, and animal plant Giants. There are friendly staff on hand throughout the paths as well as a staffer to take your picture with your phone/camera at the beautiful Poinsettia Tree. The finale of your visit is the Radiant Rainforest with it's cascading lights dancing to the classical and Christmas music. They have value nights during some of the weekdays, but you need to purchase those tickets ahead of time to get the discount. It does cost to park as does everything in downtown Atlanta. Rates vary but on the value night that we went, it was $5. I definitely plan to come back again.
What a nice garden. There are so many miles to walk through and enjoy the different plants and flowers along the way. The staff is friendly and parking is easy. Pricing is affordable and that's only if you see the value in taking a long stroll amongst nature. Definitely would recommend this place.
Christmas time is awesome at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I'm not a big flower or plant guy, but the way they transformer the gardens at night with the lights and sound is amazing! We have taken many out of town guests to this and they all walk away with this being one of the top things they do while in Atlanta. I highly recommend it for all ages, especially if you have never gone before.
Loved the Christmas light show. Long lights hanging make it look like waterfalls and react to some of the music playing.It would have been nice for a few extra drink stands through out but may have taken away from the ambiance. I do wonder if the Atlanta botanical garden has ever spoken to a musician to play during the exhibit I think that would make everything perfect but I love live music. The Parking structure is short for tall trucks.
