"Perfect for the whole family"

These gardens are extensive and well-maintained. It takes at least an hour to quickly stroll through, but want at least three hours to do all the activities and give the kids time to play. There are different types of gardens full of interesting plants and information. Around every corner there is a different tree house for the kids to play in. There is even a kids' garden which is more like a toddler water park. Kids with want a swimsuit and sand toys. The gift shop has a lunch cafe. It is pricey to get in, but definitely worth the family membership if you live in the area. Kids will want to go every day, and every month there are different learning activities to do.

"The Huntsville Botanical Garden, Fun for all Ages"

From the Childrens Garden to the indoor butterfly pavilion to the wonderful seasonal displays, there is always something going on at the Huntsville Botanical Garden.  

Our family enjoys visiting so often that we've purchased an annual pass. Highlights include the annual Scarecrow Trail, where various clubs and businesses in the community decorate a scarecrow to display. This year the garden added a fun hay bale sculptures to the mix. We also enjoy the Galaxy of Lights during the Christmas season.

For those of you with four-legged fur babies, you may enjoy knowing that the garden hosts dog days during select days in January and February where Fido is welcome to accompany you.  

My teens suggest the Childrens Garden for kids of all ages, as they enjoyed relaxing in the huge Adirondack chairs and running through the dinosaur area.

Make sure that you have your camera handy, you're guaranteed to get some great shots!

"Love to visit!"

We've visited there several times for summer and Christmas time.  They change their theme seasonally, and it's really kids friendly place.  They have a garden called "Children's Garden".  We usually take swim clothes for kids to play around for summer since they have water mist and little water play areas around it.  Christmas time, we visit there for "a walking day" in the night garden with lots of beautiful Christmas lights.  My kids love watching and walking between those Christmas lights.
