Atlanta Botanical Garden to open Skyline Garden venue in May

The Atlanta Botanical Garden is set to open a space that could become the new go-to destination for photoshoots, romantic strolls, relaxing outdoor family fun and more.

The local Atlanta attraction will open a new 1.4-square foot garden in May. Skyline Garden will feature the Anne Cox Chambers Flower Walk, Robinson Gazebo, Aquatic Plant Pond and more. According to a press release, the new space, which can be used for private events such as weddings, will also offer attendees a view of downtown and midtown, in addition to an up close look at a variety of plants.

Skyline Garden will stretch from the "Southeastern side of the Great Lawn south to the rear of the Fuqua Orchid Center on a hillside overlooking the [Piedmont Park]."

The new space was created by Atlanta Botanical Garden, Spurlock-Land and 3 fromme Design through the Garden's Nourish and Flourish Capital campaign.
