Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Historic Bamboo Farm is roughly 10 miles southwest of downtown Savannah. We are accessible from three main regional arteries: Interstate 95 (exit 94), as well as the Abercorn Expressway/204 and the Atlantic Coastal Highway/Ogeechee Road. Free parking is available on site. We are also served by Chatham Area Transit, "Silk Hope" Bus #17.

As of March 1, 2015, everyone enters CGBG through our newly renovated Canebrake Road entrance gates. The US-17/Ogeechee Road gates are no longer for public use.

CGBG is situated 19 miles inland from the moderating climate effects of the Atlantic Ocean. We are in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 8b. Winter (mid-December to late February) is tolerably cool to mild. Our summers (mid-May to early October) are hot and humid, with high temperatures and scattered afternoon thunderstorms.

There is no fee to visit Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens during regular business hours. During special seasonal events, a per-person or parking fee may be charged.

Pets (including leashed dogs) are not permitted anywhere on property at CGBG. Certified assistance animals are welcome. Please keep your pets safe and comfortable at home when you plan a visit.

Garden Etiquette

As a botanical garden, we strive for the preservation, display and maintenance of a wide array of plants. Call us a "zoo for plants," where we educate the public about the plant kingdom's diversity, uses and beauty. Ensure the health and integrity of our plant collection is always considered during your visit. Kindly abide by these simple rules of etiquette:

  • No pets allowed. Certified service animals are permitted and must remain out of garden beds.
  • Do not pick flowers, leaves or fruits from any plants. Taking unauthorized plant propagation cuttings is prohibited.
  • Walk on the grass and remain on sidewalks and other paved surfaces. Refrain from stepping into mulched planting beds as you risk damaging dormant plants, metal plant markers and our irrigation lines and emitters.
  • Photography is welcomed, but do not manipulate plants or flowers for the sake of your shot. Don't position people so that they are in planting areas where they may trample dormant bulbs and flowers and cause soil compaction. Wedding photographs are expected to maintain these standards, especially regarding keeping people out of garden beds and off of fountains, structures and rocks.
  • Place your litter in proper receptacles.
  • Bicycles are prohibited on sidewalks and garden walkways. Please park your bicycle and walk the property.
  • All tobacco products are prohibited from all buildings and the entire outdoor gardens and grounds. No smoking or chewing tobacco, or e-cigarettes.
