Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Historic Bamboo Farm (CGBG) is an historic public garden located 15 miles from historic downtown Savannah, Georgia and one of the region’s favorite tourist stops.
Historic bamboo groves and trees planted in the early 20th century are found at what locals affectionately nicknamed “the Bamboo Farm.” Historically, it was a USDA plant introduction station, starting in 1919.
Today, this newly developing regional botanical garden contains a regionally renowned camellia and cold-hardy palm collection. Ornamental gardens include a cottage garden, extensive camellia trail, xeriscape garden, water garden, rose garden, Mediterranean garden and shade garden by the lakes. One greenhouse displays orchids.
CGBG is part of the University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences and offers year-round educational classes and workshops for all ages and abilities, special events and opportunities for visitors to connect with nature and be inspired through their beautiful display gardens and collections.
Your admission fee supports their educational and outreach programs and garden maintenance.
As a facility of the University of Georgia, the entire property is tobacco free (no smoking, chewing tobacco or e-cigarettes are permitted). Pets are not permitted. Leave your dogs at home during your visit, not trapped in your vehicle.
