Atlanta Botanical Garden Review

Occupying 30 acres inside Piedmont Park, the grounds contain acres of display gardens, including a 2-acre interactive children's garden; a hardwood forest with walking trails; the Fuqua Conservatory, which has unusual flora from tropical and desert climates; and the award-winning Fuqua Orchid Center. The Canopy Walk, a 600-foot suspension bridge through Storza Woods, was recently added. A variety of special exhibits take place throughout the year.

    Good botanical garden

    This is a pleasant botanical garden with an especially nice indoor conservatory area, the latter containing a very good orchid display as well as sections on tropical, desert, and high altitude flora. The outdoor gardens vary but are generally less impressive. A few drawbacks: plant labeling is spotty at best, it's rather expensive, and it's located a long, twisting, and hilly walk from the nearest MARTA station. Still, not a bad place all in all.

    A Great Place to Pass Time

    This is a beautiful garden that is a wonderful place to spend a few hours on a nice day. The only complaint I have is admission isn't very cheap ($12).
