New Canopy Walk Offers Birds-Eye View Of The Atlanta Botanical Garden

The Canopy Walk at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, opened in May 2010, allows Garden visitors to tour one of the city's last remaining urban forests ­from 40 feet in the air lending a bird's-eye view to the beauty of a woodland below. The opening of the Canopy Walk, Edible Garden and Cascades Garden marks the completion an expansion project which nearly doubles the size of the Garden.

Extending 600 feet from a bluff in the Garden into the branches of oaks, hickories and poplars, the walk is considered the only tree canopy-level walkway of its kind in the United States. By linking the 15-acre existing Garden to the adjacent Storza Woods, the Canopy Walk doubles the visitor's experience, providing 30 acres of gardens to explore.

The attraction has been hailed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution as one of its top 10 happenings not to be missed in 2010. The Atlanta Botanical Garden is located in Midtown Atlanta near Piedmont Park, just outside of DeKalb County.
