Atlanta Botanical Garden - Review
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. It modernized the garden and made it greatly more efficiently, adding new features such as a green roof and an Edible Garden where the old parking lot used to be. A brilliant canopy walk stretches for 180 metres, 40 feet above the ground. Atlanta Botanical Garden is one of the attractions in 3 perfect days in Atlanta itinerary.

Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta Reviews
The gardens were far from being in full bloom yet they were stunning. Beautifully manicured gardens. Amazing walkways and bridges to the woodland area. Incredible ginormous topiaries. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. If you go later in the day you'll be able to enjoy the lights.
The BEST part of our Atlanta trip! We saw the Imaginary Worlds Exhibit and the detail takes your breath away! It is such a serene place to relax and enjoy the moment. The edible garden had a lot of fun facts and interesting information on different foods. The butterflies flutter around you as you walk through and it is just stunning!!
A gorgeous botanical garden in Atlanta, accessible by car, bus, or on foot. Adjacent to Piedmont Park and connected to it by a walking trail. There are many garden styles on display, a conservatory, and a wooded area with a canopy walk. The children's garden is the most elaborate I've ever seen; worth a look whether or not you have kids. Tickets are somewhat expensive, but the Garden participates in the American Horticultural Society's reciprocal admissions program. Members of about 300 other gardens/arboretums can therefore visit for free (as I did). I enjoyed it so much I visited twice during a 5-day trip to Atlanta. Outside food and drinks are forbidden, as is picnicking.
Of course the holiday display is beautiful and a wonderful place to go. But the beauty and care of this place make it so special. It's easy to pass it over without really thinking about it but you would be wrong. The art installations are gorgeous and unique. It's easy to spend the entire afternoon here just enjoying one fabulous display after another. In the heart of the city it's a wonderful escape for the whole family. During the holidays the light display is so amazing. There are lights everywhere, it's crowded but it always feels magical for the kids. This smores and trains and lights everywhere they really do have a wonderful time and it's well worth the price Anything to get them to "unplug" and enjoy a simple pleasure is worth it to me. Even if you just go once, it is a must see in Atlanta
Beautiful gardens to wander through, they even have green houses full of special plants and flowers. They do not allow you to take your own food, so plan accordingly. The theater performances here are fantastic, we saw a Midsummer Nights Dream.
