This is the first botanical garden that I have ever been too. I highly enjoyed it. I went with my husband, and it was romantic to walk through the gardens. It is also a great place to take kids. I saw plenty of families there.
Be sure to bring water and sunscreen. I didn't realize how big the park was, and there wasn't many easily assessable water fountains on the trails.
Very huge, impressive gem of Huntsville. Biggest botanical garden I've ever walked through. The children's garden was spectacular. Lots of play spots for kids along the way. Even a hammock cluster for our weary legs among the cedar grove. Truly spectacular.
