If you get the opportunity you should definitely visit the Botanical Gardens located in Mountain Brook, Al! The gardens are lovely, as was the garden shop where you could buy anything from plants, to soap and candles, to garden urns! I could have shopped for much longer but the gardens were calling my name! I will be back to spend... More

This place is truly a place where to rest and loose yourself in the nature just a few minutes away from the city. Apart from flowers (the rose garden was soo beautiful), the nice things are the benches and the swings scattered around the park where one can sit, relax him/herself and contemplate the surroundings (we also spotted a couple...

My daughter and her boyfriend, college kids on a budget, decided to have a small wedding ceremony at the Botanical Gardens. No reservation required. No charge. We found a separate and private area of the rose garden for the wedding and it could not have gone better. The gardens are beautiful and there's something for everyone -- including stunning Japanese... More

This is a very well maintained place. I learned a lot of things here with the different types of plants. This is a nice way to kill time, and it's free. Our 2 1/2 year old enjoyed their rose garden and smelling all the roses!! The only thing was when we went there was a school field trip.

This was my first visit to the Gardens and I was impressed. Even though still early in the year for full blooms of many species the gardens were lush and green. The many varied colors of Roses are amazing along with the size of blooms. Each section of the garden is clearly marked as well as the type of flowers,... More

Very well kept and always beautiful, I have been visiting the gardens here for years and I have never found one that has the... More

The children love it, the adults love it. The different gardens are beautiful and it seems like something is always blooming. Right now the dogwoods and azalea bushes are in full bloom. The iris bulbs and rhododendrons are about to bloom.

Though I've been to Birmingham a handful of times, this was my first visit to the gardens. Lots to see, especially the Japanese gardens with the koi pond and tea house. Not everything was in bloom being early spring, but I did take photos of cherry blossoms and tulips. This is not really something teenagers would want to be a... More

I enjoy this place. It is very relaxing and there is no cost. It's great to go solo or on a date. There are several paths to walk on.
