What would you do if you were a successful owner of a landscape business and owned 220 acres of rolling land just outside of Ball Ground Georgia? Well, you start by planting millions of daffodils, designing a beautiful Japanese garden, and open it up to the public, of course!
Open to the public year 'round, Gibbs Gardens offers acres and acres of walking paths around beautifully landscaped water features, plants of all kinds, and tons of interesting statues. My wife and daughter visited this past weekend and when we got there at 9 am opening time, we were 3 of only about 10 people in the park. Around lunch time many more had shown up, but all were enjoying themselves, and keeping their distance from others.
Tickets are bought on-line for now so there is very little personal interaction in the park other than a quiet nod to those you pass.
If you are in the area, Gibbs Gardens is a wonderful retreat to visit. Come and enjoy the quiet beauty that is this park. Check here for more information. Enjoy!
