Atlanta Botanical Garden Gainesville reviews
My family and I absolutely loved this garden. It is much smaller than the garden in Atlanta but it is just as gorgeous and a great place for young children. It's easy to get to, parking is plentiful..... more »
We loved all the foliage, flowers, greenery, shrubbery and sculptures that were there to see and smell!! more »
Beautiful variety of plantings for the family to enjoy. These gardens are small enough to walk without being overwhelmed by summers heat. There are a number of shaded paths with plenty of benches to sit and absorb the beauty. Children can play with the trains that are set up outside the cafe area. This is a great place to visit for a short stroll through well kept gardens. There are knowledgeable docents available to answer questions if your thumbs are not as green as you might like, enhancing the visit for those that enjoy beauty but need assistance recreating it in their backyard
Perfect place for a nice relaxing walk. The garden is beautiful and there are plenty of benches and seating scattered around the paths for you to relax and just simply take in the beauty of it all. It has an amphitheater and indoor and outdoor space that you can rent for events. The topiaries around the garden are impressive, so fun and very detailed.
