We took our grand daughter and grandsons on two different occasions. The butterfly house is a wonderful place and all three kids (and the older kids) loved the tree houses. The Pirate ship was a big hit with all. Nice also with just the two of us to stroll and enjoy/learn about the plants. The walking tour for the Festival... More

No matter what time of year, the Gardens always please. Strolling there is wonderful, even in summer heat there is shade and there are spots to cool off in the water. You walk up and experience all the sights and smells close up, and there is an incredible amount of variety. Children adore this for hours easily without getting bored,... More

Several opportunities to visit per year, there's always something going on. Winter is great for the festival of lights, and spring and summer offer butterflies and flowers. If you want to spend a few hours in a quieter setting around town, hard to beat the Botanical Garden.

During the month of Nov, the local community creates their own variations of scarecrows. They are placed all around the garden, showing off all the creativity our community possesses. The ages range from daycare to seniors. It's amazing the ideas that are displayed.

The business community helps with continuing donations to enhance our quality of life. It... More

The Botanical Gardens in Huntsville Al are beautiful. You are able to take your time and stroll around and let the kids run and play. Very relaxing

The garden is large enough that you can easily spend all day and not see it all! It's gorgeous and is the perfect retreat after work or on the weekend!

Our realtor gave us a family yearly pass for the Botanical Gardens as a housewarming gift when we bought our house in Sept. We have gone numerous times since and love it. It was gorgeous in the fall, so I can hardly wait to see it in the spring and summer. We have even leased one of their venues for... More

We did the Galaxy of lights around Christmas time. It was beautiful and only $20 per car. We go every year.
