Bring a bathing suit for the Children's GardenFlag review
The Atlanta Botanical Gardens is one of my favorite attractions in Atlanta. I’ve learned more about art here, than at any museum. They have fabulous traveling exhibits like Chihuly in the Garden, and my favorite Niki in the Garden. Younger visitors will love the Children's Garden. In summer, bring a bathing suit and towel to splash in the “flower shower” as my kids liked to call it. This is a small sprinkler that looks like a giant showere. Let the kids put on a show at the tree stage.They also have storytellers and performers, but my kids loved to put on their own production while we watched. There is also a tree house and slide. I have such fond memories of my boys using sticks to close all the venus fly trap plants. On my last visit, we bought a plant to bring home. It makes me smile every time I see it.
Tips for Families
Check their seasonal events. In the fall they have a fun scarecrows in the garden and train at Christmas. They also offer classes for kids and adults. Leave the kids at home and come out for the Cocktails in the Garden or a summer concert. The outdoor kitchen is a perfect place to enjoy an adult beverage.

Garden Lights show rocks my socks off. At a hefty price of $18.50, you get to walk around the garden and see colors as far as the eye can see, all twinkling and turning. Its a great time to walk around, take tons of pictures and absorb the feeling of winter in the air. Be prepared for massive crowds and slow walking as it can get VERY crowded in the 6-7pm time frame, so plan accordingly. I really loved the the lights that turned with the music (sort of like a light symphony) and the speckled green lights inside the conservatory- very unique. Overall I am glad I got to show this to my family as it was a great way to walk around and chill, take pictures and have some good old christmas family time. I do wish t...
I've been to the botanical gardens twice. I went once during the summer and I went again this past week to see their Christmas light display. I really enjoyed the visit during the summer. Everything was in bloom and every single turn was a perfect setting for pictures. The edible garden was fun. There are signs saying not to eat the plants in the edible garden, but Asians disregard signs...so we tried the apples and the green peppers. Young children will really enjoy a day at the gardens. (I'm in my early 20s and I had a blast!) I also went to see their Christmas light show and was very disappointed. Tickets were about $20 for adults. The best part was the entrance and you could see that from the street with...
Atlanta Botanical Garden does a stunning job of weaving artworks and decorations among plants. My first visit was for Chihuly's glass art exhibit many years ago, and it was one of the most memorable art exhibits I've ever seen (and I've been to many, many art exhibits and museums all over). I've been a fan since. I saw the magical transformation of the gardens once more when I went in for the Holiday Lights. It was their first year doing it, and I'd definitely recommend it for families, couples, anyone who wants to get in the groove of holidays!! The lights were decorated beautifully around and on the plants. The winding walkway with lanterns along the side, the tiptoe through canopy walk with Christmas ligh...
We took our grand daughter to see Santa yesterday. What a awesome Santa they had. And the fact we could take our own pictures without the hassle of them trying to sell us their own pics was a huge bonus. We got there after the Pupp...
