It's a nice and unexpected park off of Lorna Rd. in Hoover. Good place to take a walk, not so many species of plants to admire. I believe it should look much prettier in spring. Just a few flowers in the summer. However, it's very clean and well taken care of.

Even when you're away from home! I visit family every so often in Birmingham but always try to visit Aldridge. My last visit coincided with an art show being held there which was a plus. Walk the path and you'll find lots of wildlife and don't miss the little gift shop.

I enjoy visiting these gardens and walking around the lake and through the gardens. It is small, so don't expect to spend hours looking at the platings, but it is very well maintained. The whole area is clean, and easily accessible to most. There is a nice variety of planting and they have a covered area where they orient school... More

Aldridge Botanical Gardens is almost a hidden treasure in the heart of Hoover, AL that not many know about. It has a nice, winding trail that goes about a half-mile or so around a small lake in the center of the property, and has many areas for restful relaxation. There are often events there (check out their website at http://aldridgegardens.com/)... More

One minute you're in the city. The next the country. Beautiful little pond/lake that has a nice walking trail. Great spot for family photos especially in the spring when all the hydrangeas are in bloom!

If you aren't careful you might drive right past Aldridge Gardens, it is on the corner and the sign can be hidden around a curve until you get right on it. I haven't taken all the trails that go up into the woods on the building side of the lake but I have walked around the lake on both visits,... More
