You are able to enjoy the environment without bumping into people and still have time to sit back and enjoy the view. While we visited... More

I have taken grandchildren here to enjoy all the fun things for kids, and I have taken adult friends because it's also a beautiful fun place for big kids.

Love to visit any time of the year. The gardens are beautiful even in the winter. Christmas lights are a awesome sight. Weekends are very busy during the Christmas season

Excellent place to spend an afternoon walking and enjoying flowers, birds and nature in general. My daughter loves the children garden and the butterfly house is definitively a favorite. Totally worth a visit, and if you leave in Huntsville or close by, I do recommend the membership :)

We take our grandchildren to the Garden regularly. They love it as the displays change often and there is always an adventure for them! Special treats are the train, the butterfly house, and the Children's Garden.

You order at the counter where there is a nice range of sandwich selections and the food is brought to you. The ordering line can be long but the day we were there the order taker was very efficient also while taking payments. We ate outside on the deck with a nice view of the gardens entrance area.

Spent time walking the trails and enjoying the layout of this beautiful facility. I can see in season it will be a jewel. Construction is almost completed on their new main building which looked awesome. Limited flowers and amenities this time of year but worth the (reduced) admission price.
