There are a variety of themed gardens to visit, including shaded paths through the woods. The shade was particularly nice on the hot, humid day of my visit. I'm sure the gardens would have been even nicer earlier in the season, when more of the flowers were in bloom. The butterfly house is in the children's garden area, but is... More

We are members of the garden. It is beautiful and always something in bloom. The butterfly house and the children's area are also wonderful. They also have a nice cafe but it isn't open long enough.

Beautiful, stunning, creative, and fun. They have a gorgeous butterfly house and kids section that actually looked like fun. The heat was killer but worth dealing with it. The staff was very friendly and helpful too! :)

This is a wonderful pace for people of all ages! They have a butterfly house and many child centered activities, plus they host events in their Arbor of on their lawn. Exhibits change often, now there is a Lego exhibit and soon will be the scarecrow trail. The highlight for me is the Christmas Galaxy of Lights. They have certain... More

We came here for local employee appreciation day and brought our young grandchildren. It was so much fun for all of us. Kids loved the LEGO exhibit, butterfly house and water exhibits. Worth the visit!

We came for the Lego exhibit (which I think is now over), but that wasn't nearly as much of a draw for my 4 and 7 year old children as all the other places they could play. They loved the area with large Lincoln logs, the castle and other sand play areas, and especially the large Children's Garden with at... More

At first we did not plan to go her thinking it was just another botanical garden and didn't think the kids would enjoy. A lady a the Huntsville Visitor center suggested it and gave us 20% off coupons. Our kids had so much fun. They allow you to bring in your own food, drinks, blankets and small coolers. When you...

Enjoyed a lovely morning walking through the gardens. Grounds are well maintained, and attractive, benches well-positioned, loved the hammocks. Nice spot for a lunch in the cafe. Butterfly house is small but enjoyable. Our teenager particularly liked the Koi pond.

We were a little hesitant considering the cost when the Birmingham gardens are free, but we decided to try it anyway. It is a beautiful place ! The landscapping is lovely with so many picturesque spots. It was a truly enjoyable day, and I am sure we will come back.
