The Huntsville Botanical Garden in conjunction with the Space Center apparently open the grounds each year for this elaborate, gorgeous display of lighted vignettes through which the public drives.

Beautiful botanical garden, although visiting the end of October many of the flowers were past prime. However, the flowers in bloom were gorgeous. Additionally there was a special Halloween event for children the day I visited. Clever Halloween exhibits were set up for the youngsters in their costumes.

The garden has matured into a year round draw for visitors. Wonderful Christmas light display in December. There is always something happening at the garden.

You will find the gardens are well kept, the grounds immaculate, and the personnel very friendly! The gardens are an excellent way to spend an afternoon regardless of the season. Oh, be sure to visit the hammocks! You will love them, too!

We visited on the day after arriving in Huntsville from the UK feeling very jet lagged. A really nice warm sunny garden walk was a good tonic. Saw lots of great birds and butterflies as well as very interesting plants.
