Whether you're gazing up at the exotic rain forest full of orchids in the massive Fuqua Orchid Center or peering down at the familiar Southern woodland paths beneath the Kendeda Canopy Walk, the Atlanta Botanical Garden puts on quite a show from above or below. The fragrant rose garden is a pleasant spot to pause during the spring and summer seasons, and the Edible Garden showcases veggies in a surprisingly beautiful little theater. As an added treat, sculptures by artists such as the famous glass master Dale Chihuly pop up throughout the park to accent the exhibits. From the colorful displays of the Children's Garden to the tranquil pagoda of the Japanese Garden, the Atlanta Botanical Garden intrigues and inspires visitors of all ages.March 5, 2012 Like Add a Comment

Atlanta’s Not So Secret Garden – Atlanta, GA. Atlanta Botanical Gardens is a thirty-acre plant Mecca. It houses 20 different plants from around the world and 6 garden exhibits, such as; the Japanese garden, complete with Japanese architecture, trees and even undergrowth. A children’s garden is at one’s disposal and comes complete with a water play area and pint-sized amphitheater where they can all meet and listen to stories given by the staff about bees, butterflies, frogs and flowers. If you’re not afraid of heights, the 600-foot-long Kendeda Canopy Walk allows visitors to view one of the cities last remaining forests from 40 feet in the air. And, when your feet get tired, because they undoubtedly will, take a seat and enjoy the panorama of whimsical sculptures and fountains that litter the space.March 5, 2012 Like Add a Comment
