Atlanta Botanical Garden
Adjacent to Piedmont Park, Atlanta Botanical Garden comprises a stunning 30 acres (12 hectares) of indoor and outdoor themed gardens, woodland areas, brooks, fern glades, and walking paths. A highlight is the Dorothy Chapman Fuqua Conservatory, a massive collection of plants from tropical rain forests and deserts from around the globe.
 
The Basics
The leafy Atlanta Botanical Garden is a pleasant place to wander and escape the Atlanta traffic. While many travelers visit independently, a guided tour of the garden ensures you explore all 30 acres (12 hectares) while learning more about the plants, animals, hidden sculptures, and water features that make this one of the best gardens in the nation.
 
Nature-themed tours of the city include the botanical garden, as well as Olmsted Linear Park, Grant Park, and Centennial Olympic Park.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Atlanta Botanical Garden is a must-visit for nature lovers and families traveling with kids.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather, as many of the gardens are outdoors.
  • Give yourself three to four hours in the garden to explore.
  • Nearly all areas of the garden are wheelchair accessible, and wheelchairs are available for rent.
 
How to Get There
Atlanta Botanical Garden is located in Midtown Atlanta, adjacent to Piedmont Park on Piedmont Avenue. You can easily get here by car, Bus 27, and the MARTA transit system.
 
When to Get There
The botanical garden is closed on Mondays, except for certain public holidays; hours are reduced during the winter months. Springtime tends to be the most colorful season, but there’s always something in bloom.
