Atlanta Botanical Gardens

The Atlanta Botanical Garden is a 30-acre (12 ha) urban oasis located in the City of Atlanta’s Midtown neighborhood. Established in 1976, the Garden has steadily grown into an internationally recognized institution with premier horticultural displays, popular year-round exhibitions, pioneering conservation research and inspiring STEM enrichment education.

Thirty acres of display gardens and shady woodlands featuring plant collections including roses, herbs, conifers, carnivorous plants, and more. Special features include the Dorothy Chapman Fuqua Conservatory, home to rare and endangered tropical and desert plants, and the Children's Garden, a unique, hands-on garden with a health and wellness theme. The Fuqua Orchid Center includes a High Elevation Orchid House and a Tropical Orchid House, both beautiful throughout the year.

Be prepared to be wined and dined with a total guest experience at the Garden's new Atlanta restaurant in partnership with Linton Hopkins. The two-level contemporary glass structure, nestled next to Gardenhouse, offers full-service dining, a grab-and-go Quick Café, and much-needed flexible space for educational programs, private rentals and special events. From inside, guests may enjoy commanding views of the Anne Cox Chambers Southern Seasons Garden and Levy Parterre, while from the rooftop terrace they can drink in the beauty of Storza Woods, Alston Overlook and the Atlanta skyline beyond. Regardless of table, all will be treated to a savory menu by James Beard Award-winning Chef Linton Hopkins and Executive Chef Jason Paolini. The glass-and-stone restaurant, designed by Perkins + Will, includes more than 3,000 square feet of dining space with seating capacity of about 250. While the main dining areas offers a full menu of garden-inspired cuisine, the Quick Café focuses on items such as sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts for visitors on the go. Garden admission is required to dine. Walk-in guests are welcome; reservations are recommended. (Source: www.exploregeorgia.org)
