We drove from Atlanta to see the eclipse and stroll through the gardens. We were able to experience the eclipse but there are NO signs, directions or anything on how to get to the gardens. The center was closed so couldn't ask. I can't believe the total lack of directions for the gardens. We found a map but it too was TOTALLY devoid of how to get inside the gardens. We just left!!

I had a guided tour of these beautiful gardens by my son Tyler in Late July while we were visiting. A beautiful place for a hike with a great diversity of plant life! I hope to return and try another trail!

I'd been a foreign student studying here for three years, and it's always been a place to explore/learn/feel in the botanical garden.

Beautiful plants! The kids looked watching the caterpillars eat lunch.

Awesome botanical garden with many different species of exotic and native plants. There are several themed gardens and a geology museum where you can buy fossils and stones. If you enjoy botany and nature like I do then you will love this place.
