The Jimmy Carter Center Gardens
The Jimmy Carter Center Gardens, located in Atlanta, Georgia, is a thirty-seven acre wooded park that contains a formal garden, wild flower meadow, cherry orchard, Japanese garden, a couple of lakes, and waterfalls. The rose garden contains about 400 plants with 80 different varieties.
Of course the gardens aren't the only thing to see here. The Jimmy Carter Library and Museum is here, which features an exact replica of the Oval Office and the Nobel Prize awarded to Jimmy Carter.
The gardens are open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 -4:45 and Sunday from 12:00 - 4:45. Admission is $8.00 for adults.
