No better spot for a relaxing walk in the Magic City. Can't recommend this place enough. Beautiful gardens. Really enjoyed watching the bees & the bee hives by the pollinator garden.

Beautiful grounds, very well maintained. Perfect for pictures, exercise, family. Wanted to purchase a fruit tree but gift shop was closed. Weather was great in September!

We were very pleasantly surprised at how well maintained and pretty the gardens were in mid-August which is not the best season for growing due to the heat. No admission fee.

This garden is so beautiful and definitely worth a visit. I was surprised it's free. There are so many lovely little areas to meander. It's a great place to spend a beautiful day.

Beautiful grounds, but we were there during a hot, sticky July evening and the mosquitoes chased us away from seeing more of the park.

We have been here to walk around and take pictures, for weddings, and just to take a stroll. It is always very well kept and clean. The grounds are gorgeous. What a great way to get back to nature right in the middle of Birmingham....More

I seem to recall that dogs are fine. I assume yours is well behaved, so he/she should be welcome. Bring doggie bag!

I believe the gardens are open 7 days a week during reasonable hours. Plenty of parking
