Atlanta Botanical Gardens
Founded in 1976, this 15-acre (six-hectare) expanse of natural wonder is located adjacent to Piedmont Park. A hardwood forest intertwined with walking trails surrounds the Fuqua Conservatory, which houses a Japanese garden, rock garden, and displays of flora from all over the globe. In addition to the Southeast's most comprehensive showing of indigenous plants, the conservatory maintains an amazing collection of carnivorous specimens and roses. Moonlight garden walks and seasonal shows are also sponsored.
I compared Atlanta Botanical Garden to the Chicago Botanical Graden is like night and day. I love botical gardens, but the Atlanta Botanical Garden is really nothing but fake blown glass balloons. Not much flowers to begin with, especially the rose garden, not many roses. It was mixed with lillies and other flowers. The dmission is way too high verses the Chicago Botanical Graden is FREE.
