We attended a wedding at Huntsville Botanical Gardens and were impressed. The outdoor venue for the wedding was beautiful and the gardens were well maintained. Certainly worth an hour or two while you are in Huntsville.

Spent several hours enjoying the splendid gardens. Enjoyed the mythical creatures scattered about and lovely views. The butterfly house was very nice, saw one variety I had never seen. Would love to return in cooler weather.

It was a major surprise to find such nice garden! They do a great job keeping flowers in bloom and landscaping. The staff and workers were very friendly. We were told there were more than 200 volunteers. Don't miss the cafe with its fresh dishes.

Accompanied a friend for a magical breakfast event. They ran out of breakfast which was disappointing but after a long wait, we were served a little bit. The children’s activities were good but I feel could have used some more hostesses walking around to encourage...More

As if the gardens aren’t fabulous enough to draw you in, they’ve added a fun extra this summer. Sprinkled throughout the park are a series of sculptures of mythical subjects. Some are dainty and small others are over ten feet tall. All are in “living”...More

No cart rentals that I saw. Wheelchair is required for distance if the patient is in need. You will have a hard time on some inclines but it is worth it.
