“See the natural history of Georgia in one place!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Botanical garden has representative plants from all the regions of Georgia, which has a rich and diverse natural history. Great displays and educational programs as well. We've been members of the Friends group for years. The Gardens are a great place to spend a lunch hour or a whole day.

“World Class”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Very impressive botanical garden. Well-designed for both the casual walker and the experienced plantsperson. Lots of neat trails to explore. Labeling all in ship-shape order and grounds immaculate with interesting plantings. Wish this were closer to me - what a great free addition to the community!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Very nice place to visit to clear your head, and see some beautiful, colorful plants. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Didn't like the long walk from the parking lot.

Just an amazing place to go, the indoor display is beautiful, outdoors is just as enjoyable.
Its truly a pleasure to visit, I try to go 4-5 times a year. Bring your best camera.

“understated natural elegance”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

Stroll, run, love, date - it is a great place to find yourself and just BE. It is very quiet and understated. Be sure to see Susan Carlton Smith's work in the center.
