This place is a must, if you visiting Birmingham area. Recommended for any visitor. We were at this for almost 2 hours, but did not cover everything. Best part is it is free. Good place to visit with Kids and family.

Went on an amazing exercise-walk throughout the Botanical Gardens. These gardens are beautifully maintained and managed. Enjoyed watching Photographers taking pictures of Brides/Families/Children- added a reminder of timeless settings within the Gardens. Enjoyed every minute of walking & observing nature.

I believe the gardens are open 7 days a week during reasonable hours. Plenty of parking
