Focus V Campaign

The Huntsville Botanical Garden is proud of the growth that has occurred since 1988 when our doors first opened to the public. We operate from the premise that we are truly the community’s garden and are committed to being good stewards of our resources. Through your valuable feedback over the years, we have updated our Master Plan with our focus being:

  • Extending our hospitality with a new  guest center and additional visitor amenities
  • Emphasizing our pedestrian experience with floral promenade, meadow walk, and the interpretative signage
  • Strengthening and enhancing the core
  • Celebrating our Southern heritage with the use of historical courthouse columns and native plantings

We hope you are proud of your Garden and will consider supporting us in the future.
