These spacious grounds are perfect for an afternoon picnic or a grade school field trip. Each season provides a different landscape. Worth the money!

My son and I went to the Huntsville Botanical Gardens during the Legos Exhibit. He really likes Legos and this was a great experience. He thoroughly enjoyed the Father/Son Day that we spent together looking at all the Lego Exhibits.

We've been members for three years now, and we're still finding new corners that we hadn't discovered yet. It changes seasonally. It's just beautiful. You will not see it all in one day.

My wife and I enjoyed that there were not many people there at the time we arrived. It was a little cold outside could be the reason. We got exercise and we even learned a lot. the gold fish in the koi pond was nice.

This garden is quite new, so one shouldn't expect ancient trees, shrubs and other older growth foliage. The park has a number of ponds and one wet weather stream. The park is particularly entertaining in the winter, as they have a terrific drive-thru light show around Christmas time, which is popular with the community. The park closes around 5:00pm, so...

The city's marathon runs through it so got that view, and then came by a following morning to roam around and really enjoyed it even though December is not the best for the flora viewing. Just a nice place to get away to a few hours and decompress. Although I did not go through at night, the number of set-ups... More

From Thanksgiving through New Year's, the Botanical Garden has a beautiful display of Christmas lights that you can view from your car. The cost (2015) is $20/car, opens at dusk, and takes about 30 minutes to drive. Each year the Garden adds more decorations--really worth if for the whole family!
