Atlanta Botanical Garden: Alice in Wonderland

 This past weekend I had the chance to visit the Atlanta Botanical Garden for the first time, and it did not disappoint. 








I was mainly excited to visit because of the special exhibit they hosted called Alice's Wonderland Reimagined. As the website states, it features many topiary-like sculptures that are reminiscent of the childhood classic, Alice in Wonderland. For more information about the creation process, visit the botanical gardens website here







Like Alice, I got lost in this beautiful exhibit, and altogether, garden. As a fan of the film and book, I thoroughly enjoyed the sculptures. I loved how life-sized it was and the materials used to create it made it feel even more genuine. If you are a fan of surreal art, you will enjoy these pieces. 









There are also multiple greenhouses located within the park, including the Fuqua Conservatory which features desert rose flowers, nutmeg, and jade vines. The massive collection of different flowers and plants make the greenhouses worth a walk-through. I also loved how each green species had its own sign next to the display for identification purposes. It felt nice and earthy to be around all of these plants and it smelled so good. Definitely a nice change from the fast-paced lifestyle that Atlanta is known for. 




Speaking of, I will definitely be going back to Atlanta during  the holiday period, so be on the look out for a few more notable locations that will be featured on this blog. 



The  Atlanta Botanical Garden is nicely situated next to the vast Piedmont Park, allowing visitors a nice glimpse of parts of Atlanta's skyline. 

The ABT is open daily from 9am - 7pm, Tuesday to Sunday (ticketed & timed entry). 

the Alice's Wonderland Reimagined  is open now till November 1.
