About Columbus Botanical Garden

Nestled in North Columbus amid shopping and eateries, Columbus Botanical Garden operates as a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission

is to develop gardens, protect woodland, and provide educational programs that stimulate the imagination and deepen our understanding

and appreciation of nature. This preserved jewel of pine and hardwood forest is a remnant reminder of the native Central Georgia

landscape that is becoming more scarce as the region continues to develop. Since its founding in 1999 with a gift of acreage and buildings

from the children and families of Lillie Belle Kimbrough Adams and later approved by the Columbus City Council, Columbus Botanical

Garden (CBG) has been the steward of a 23-acre rolling property located about 6 miles northeast of downtown Columbus. With its recent

expansion to 36 acres, CBG now encompasses four developed acres, and there are additional plans for further development with its $10

million “Growing Towards Greatness” Capital Campaign.
