Visiting Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is consistently recognized as one of the top public gardens in the United States. Most recently the Garden was voted number 4 in USA Today’s “Best Botanical Gardens” contest (April 2016). With more than 50 acres of landscaped gardens and year-round beauty, the Garden is a must-see destination.
Visiting Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is an experience. Friendly staff are ready to greet you and help plan your visit. You can easily spend several hours or even an entire day exploring the Garden. The property’s origins as a bicycle club in the 1890s and later a private residence result in an interesting history.
