Gibbs Gardens in Ball Ground, Georgia

Our gardens are designed for your comfort and pleasure in every season of the year. The 126 benches along the paths on the south side of the Valley Gardens invite you to sit, rest and let your senses take over. Take a deep breath of fresh clean air scented with the natural fragrance of flowers and plants. Gaze around at the vast Fern Dell, thick with hundreds of varieties running almost a mile along a gentle stream. Don’t miss the aerial acrobatics of dragonflies zooming across the Japanese Gardens’ seven ponds’ before they rest – just for a second or two -- on the blooms of water iris. A grove of soaring mature hardwoods shades The Arbor Café’ dining area. Listen to the birds sing and waterfalls splash as you bite into a sandwich made with fresh-baked artisan bread. Even the names are appetizing: Cranberry Walnut, Black Olive Asiago and Cheddar Jalapeno are just a few of the delicious choices. And, make sure to leave room for the best pound cake you’ve ever tasted. Treat yourself to Gibbs Gardens. Less than an hour north of Atlanta, there’s no charge for parking. Trams -- $5 for a day pass -- will take you between the Welcome Center and Manor House Gardens and the Welcome Center and Japanese Gardens. There’s nothing like a day at Gibbs Gardens to renew your spirit and refresh your sense of wonder.
