Came here to take photos, and it was close to the zoo. It was very quiet, and well kept. There was no cost to get in. A nice getaway in Birmingham.

We have had numerous photo shoots here by professional photographers and parents taking homecoming or prom pictures. The gardens are beautiful and offer many great backdrops for these pictures. There is no charge to enter or park.

I recently moved from Dallas, TX. I was looking forward to visiting the Botanical Gardens and I believe they do the best they can with what they've got. If they want to have a more spectacular venue it would require charging admission, which I would...More
