The garden complex splits up into multiple smaller exhibits, including a Japanese garden, a rainforest section, and a desert. View the most diverse orchid collection in the country, kept healthy by a special climate-control system that mimics the flower’s natural environment. Explore a forest from an elevated pathway 12 m (40 ft) high on the special 180 m (600 ft) long Canopy Walk. The entire complex is mostly outdoors, so dress appropriately.

Atlanta Botanical Garden reviews
This place is beautiful. Youcan do it in about three hours, but be ready to walk.Try to go Thurs., Fri., or Saturday. They have music and serve cocktails. And the Trools are mega-cool.

The husband and I went tonight and it was absolutely amazing, we loved everything about it! Even tho the temperature was low and they didn't allow my outside coffee into the garden, we still had a fabulous time! There are clean bathrooms throughout the entire garden, plenty of place to sit and simply enjoy the scenery, tonight there was a strings band playing live beautiful music, there were lights everywhere once it got dark enough, even the other guess were so very sweet to us!! We will definitely be back whenever we come back to the area for work! The water at the goddess wasn't on which was unfortunate but it was still extremely beautiful! We recommend this beautiful garden for anyone wanting a stroll through nature, date night for any couple, an outing for the kids! There was a bride and groom there tonight taking pictures because it is that beautiful!! Enjoy!
We came on a Saturday (yesterday) and arrived as they were opening. The atmosphere from the grand lobby to the garden grounds is very impressive. I enjoyed the walk between gardens and exhibits. This time of year the air is crisp but perfect for the walk through. I especially loved the Orchid Daze exhibition. The flowers and leaves are SO exquisite. I was left speechless and took a moment to sit on one of the many benches to just take it all in. I highly recommend for any nature lovers. I would definitely go again especially closer to spring when more flowers are in bloom.
