Atlanta Botanical Garden
Set in the northwest corner of Piedmont Park, the Atlanta Botanical Garden is a stunning 30 acre (12 hectare) garden composed of winding paths and a number of smaller themed gardens. Each themed garden contains different landscapes to display a variety of plants. Two woodland areas, Upper Woodland and Storza Woods, feature large trees, paved paths, a fern glade, bubbling brooks, and shade-loving flowers and undergrowth.
One of the major highlights of the Atlanta Botanical Garden is the Dorothy Chapman Fuqua Conservatory, a massive collection of plants from tropical rainforests and deserts. Another is the Tropical Rotunda, a rainforest populated by tropical birds, turtles, and several exhibits of poison dart frogs. For those wanting to see the woodland areas from above, try the Canopy Walk, which gives you a bird’s-eye view from 40 feet (12 meters) up.
Other highlights include a rock garden, a dwarf conifer garden, an English knot herb garden, a tranquil moon-gated Japanese garden, a rose garden, and annual and perennial displays. Young families will love the Children's Garden, which features whimsical sculptures, fountains, and interpretive exhibits on botany, ecology, and nutrition.
The Atlanta city pass was relay good value
We loved everything! The Coke tour was delightful, the aquarium was beautiful, loved the tour of the CNN center..very informative, and the kids loved all the dinosaur exhibits at the Natural History Museum! We would highly recommend it for any future visitors to Altanta!
Great! Saved a lot of time that would have been spent standing in a queue. Totally worth the price! I would definitely recommend this pass to those who are short on time and want to visit the landmarks of Atlanta too..
The Atlanta Botanical Garden is located in midtown Atlanta, adjacent to Piedmont Park on Piedmont Avenue. You can easily get here by car, bus, and MARTA trains. Be sure to check for special events. Flower shows and other activities are held throughout the year.
