Our family has been to the Botanical Gardens a couple of times. We enjoy a lesiurely stroll through the gardens. When the flowers and plants are in bloom, it's absolutely gorgeous. The paths are marked and fairly flat. There are a few hilly areas but nothing too strenuous.
My daughter and I visited the Birmingham Botanical Gardens in the fall and had a great time enjoying the outdoors. There are dozens of gardens to explore and the site is extremely well-maintained and clean. At first, my daughter was a little disappointed because she thought there would be roses and daisies in each garden, but she quickly became enthralled with the various themes and designs. I certainly plan to visit these Gardens again soon.
We are not big garden people since we tend to kill everything we touch, but botanical gardens is very pretty. Me and my family get our pics done there in the spring and summer months and they always turn out beautiful. It is a very relaxing place to be or a good place to pop the question though. Plus, there are flowers there that are exquisite!
Such a beautiful peaceful place! This is one of those must sees in our city. Free admission makes things even better when you are trying to find a fun, yet cheap activity. There are main paths, hidden paths, guided tours, etc. So much to do and it may take you a good part of the day. So, pack a picnic!
Birmingham’s largest living museum contains over 10,000 living plants and some fun outdoor sculptures to explore. Of the more than two dozen unique gardens, my personal favorite is the Japanese Gardens, which bring an authentic taste of the Far East with a traditionally crafted tea house.
They often have adult and family classes related to art or horticulture for a fee. Check website for options and costs.
