Go Public Gardens Days

Join us outside May 6–15th for Go Public Gardens Days, an initiative of the American Public Gardens Association.

Go Public Gardens is an evergreen American Public Gardens Association initiative that encourages the public to visit, value, and volunteer at public gardens in their communities. Go Public Gardens Days brings national attention to this campaign for one week during the summer; and Atlanta History Center is thrilled to highlight our Goizueta Gardens and associated offerings in support of this effort.

Our gardens include both paved and unpaved paths, and admission is included with a general Atlanta History Center ticket. Advanced reservations are encouraged. Receive $5 off with code NPGW$5. Purchase your ticket today!

Goizueta Gardens is a 33-acre landscape encompassing nine distinct gardens—including preserved woodland, diverse plant collections, and heritage-breed animals.

Sheep on a Stroll

Join us every Saturday for the unique experience of seeing one of our heritage breed sheep or goats on their weekly stroll across campus. Our Manager of Animal Collections can usually be found with a sheep by his side at the tree table in the Entrance Gardens between 2–2:30pm weather permitting.

Join us on May 3, 2022, for a Cherokee Garden Library Talk featuring Jennifer J. Richardson and Spencer Tunnell II, authors of Olmsted’s Linear Park.
