Smith-Gilbert Gardens is the City of Kennesaw’s botanical garden. Voted one of the top five places to take children in the Atlanta metro area, the 17-acre property is rich with botanical, artistic and historic treasures.

With fifteen themed garden spaces, the reconstruction of the Hiram Butler House, and more than 4,000 curated plant species, Smith-Gilbert Gardens offers a beautiful and fascinating experience. We invite you to visit our award-winning “Garden with Wings” butterfly house, crevice garden, bonsai collection, children’s play structures, Koi ponds, more than 30 sculptures and so much more.

Smith-Gilbert Gardens’ conservation mission is evident throughout the gardens. A minimal-toxicity ethic means that we curtail the use of chemical treatments in garden maintenance. Through best practices in collection management and collaborations with Georgia Power, State Botanical Garden of Georgia and Atlanta Botanical Garden, we work to preserve global plant biodiversity and improve local habitat. Our educational programs share knowledge of and passion for nature, while inspiring participants to be conservation minded.
