Atlanta Botanical Garden During Covid

Since the entire world has been on a much needed pause. Dylan and I haven’t been able to do our usual outdoor summer activities.

How do you keep your child’s mind curious but safe,social distancing style . What better way than planning a trip to the botanical garden!?!

It was our first time visiting the botanical garden, Atlanta. Despite it being a pandemic.

we had a great social distancing time!

we felt safe and appreciate all the extra measures the BTG has in place.

  • The Children’s Garden opens at 9 a.m. (8 a.m. on Member Mondays) and closes at dusk.

  • The Splash Pad and Build-A-Fort area will remain closed until further notice.

  • The Water Painting Wall will be open for finger-painting, but the brushes will be removed for the season.

  • The Fuqua Conservatory and Orchid Center opens at noon and closes at 8 p.m.

  • Restrooms will be closed often for sanitation.

  • all staff and volunteers wear mask at all time.

  • hand sanitizer stations located throughout the park

The Garden is absolutely beautiful and every corner is a learning opportunity. In the pond Dylan saw his first tadpole near the orchard center. We chose not to go in to avoid being in enclosed space with other people. However, the orchards were beautiful from the glass.
