Great place to take visiting parents or folks who like gardens. The holiday lights display is beautiful at night. The restaurant is pretty good now. John Prine concert in the summer was fabulous. Worth the membership as a local.

The Christmas lit gardens ,especially the Fuqua tropical pavilion are a must once a year. The Chihuly exhibits - exquisite. Then when Spring has sprung the garden rules with different rooms displaying varieties of flowers,shrubs,topiary as well vegetables... More

The Christmas light display was amazing. I haven't ever been to a display like this before, and would love to go back. Definitely worth the money and the trip. I have a new appreciation for Orchestral Orbs!

I surprised my wife with tickets to this event...I've known about Chihuly's sculptures for a long time, but she had not...we were both blown away by the gardens, his sculpture's and when it got dark, the whole atmosphere of the event...this is spectacular!

We were lucky to visit here on a warm (75 degree) day in January. Not a lot blooming but it was serene to just breathe in the scent of soil in the sunshine and wander the paths. The orchids in the conservatory are astoundingly beautiful. We had lunch in the in the restaurant which was very good. Would visit again,... More

Visited the gardens on our visit to Atlanta. When we were there they had the Chihuly in the gardens exhibit going on. So cool to see. So much to see and take in while there. We had a little snack in the cafe and continued our garden experience. I would suggest at least a 2 hr. window to enjoy your... More

So excited I was able to catch this exhibit! My boss came to town and she was equally ecstatic! My 10 yo was invited to join and it was such a fantastic time! The opportunity to visit the park is always nice. Chihuly was an EPIC bonus!

The gardens are a great place to go for a date night. You can get some exercise and go at your own pace. No one is there to rush you, so get to know your date. Stop, talk and listen to each other while surrounded by an assortment of beautiful plants. I went during the Chihuly in the Gardens. They... More

Absolutely stunning. Eat before you get there because it is not great food and long waits, but the Light Show is definitely worth going to.
