Smith-Gilbert Gardens Environmental Education and Visitor Center

(770) 569-1706

Established as a gateway to the tranquil gardens, this special center was designed with versatility in mind. The entry level houses a ticket window, information desk, and grand atrium suited to warmly welcome visitors and students from school field trips.

In the evenings, to accommodate upscale events, the atrium transforms into a reception lounge. Sitting on the upper level, the Celebration Pavilion hosts dinner, reception, and dancing in a unique venue as the fireplace centralizes the warm environment. The large catering kitchen comfortably supports the venue and maximizes flexibility.

Continuing a theme of versatility, support spaces convert from teaching classrooms during the daytime to modern places to host wedding functions and the likes in the evening.
