Located on 30 acres in Midtown Atlanta, our world-class facilities make the Garden an unparalleled experience among Atlanta’s cultural offerings, including our Kendeda Canopy Walk, the Children’s Garden, Edible Garden & Outdoor Kitchen, the Dorothy Chapman Fuqua Conservatory, Center for Conservation and Education, and state of the art Fuqua Orchid Center—the largest orchid collection in the United States.
At the Garden, visitors experience natural environments from the high elevations of Peru, to the tropical rainforests of Africa, New Caledonia, and Asia, to the deserts f Madagascar, as well as native habitats of the southeast United States. Stunning garden and horticultural displays, exceptional educational programs for children and adults, special events, world-class exhibitions all offer additional opportunities to experience and learn at the Garden. Behind the beauty and peace of the Garden’s public face, equally important and critical domestic and international conservation activities work to preserve our national and global heritage. Many of the Garden’s living collections are of rare and endangered species that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.
Always exploring new cultural and horticultural opportunities, the Atlanta Botanical Garden is filled with people exploring, learning, absorbing, celebrating and enriching their minds and bodies in many new ways.
