There is plenty of room to bring the kids and walk around on the many different trails and gardens. Always something different to look at everytime you go. We love the rose garden and Japanese gardens.

We had a nice saturday in the sun here. Loved the swinging benches. It offers lots of variety, seems very safe and of course depends on the season. We will come back

Free fun for the whole family and we always bring our out of town guests here for a visit. Make sure to visit year round for all the different seasonal blooms and events. Flicks among the flowers is a favorite!

We enjoyed walking through the gardens, especially the Japanese garden. It was pretty even in the winter and I image it is very beautiful in the other three seasons.

Visiting the Birmingham Botanical Gardes is a must see for residents and visitors. Not difficult to spend eight hours viewing all of the botanical wonders available to see. Easy walking and on premise cafe can accommodate all breaks or meals

We planned an early morning quiet walk throw the gardens and saw many different species of plants and woodland. As it was December, the gardens were not as colourful as in summer, but nonetheless, it was very interesting, especially the Japanese gardens. Car parking was...More
