Savannah Botanical Gardens

Savannah’s transforming horticultural destination, the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens is part of the University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. We’re 51 acres of historic plants, ornamental gardens, lakes, early 20th-century buildings and modern pick-your-own berry fields. Once a USDA plant introduction station, today we are becoming a comprehensive botanical garden.

My husband, son (2.5 years), and I visited here on our trip to Savannah. It was a Sunday morning, so there wasn't anything else to do. We were pleasantly surprised! We spent about an hour just wandering around. The fragrant roses were great! The whole space was great. We also went “off road” onto a trail. Walking through the woods was very relaxing. We saw a GIANT spider, maybe the biggest one I've ever seen in person, outside. No joke! It was really cool. Then, as we were about to leave, we saw the Children's Garden, another sweet little treat.

Pets are welcome on a leash and donations appreciated. The roses smell amazing, even though there were just a few left in winter. The turtles in the pond are nice, and there is a cute children's garden area where they are encouraged to dig, water, climb, etc. Helpful? Thank Karen E Report

Nice way to spend an hour. My husband and I went for a date to wander through the gardens and snap photos. The main area is fairly small but is full of tended garden beds and quaint landscaping. Beautiful flowers and a nice variety of plants and blooms. For me, the real star was the new children's garden: so whimsical, fun, and thoughtfully done. They've really thought about how to engage kids in gardening and plants. There's a “touch and smell” bed for kids to get hands-on with the plants. There was also a “pizza garden” with bell peppers, chilies, tomatoes, and basil. While the gardens are free, there's a donation box if you find your visit worthwhile. Go for a stroll with a date, or take the kids for some family time.

For a garden, it was ok. It was very small. WEAR bug spray! They have rose gardens that are separated by smell, which was pretty cool. I visited in late July, so it may be better in the spring when everything is in bloom. It is a nice photo op, but not much more.

Surprisingly charming little garden that you walk through on your own. It was only a few minutes drive from our hotel and it was free! Take an hour and enjoy walking through the rose gardens, around the pond, meandering up and down the paths of well-tended plants.

We came here to see the Christmas lights on family night. It was a sight to see! I think I even enjoyed it more than Callaway Gardens Fantasy in Lights, which we had seen three nights prior. The scenes were lovely and I especially loved the lighted trees, the grapevines, and the orange trees! Very well done!
