The Huntsville Botanical Garden is truly the community’s garden.
The Huntsville Botanical Garden is open year-round and boasts a picture-perfect aquatic garden, a spectacular wildflower and nature trail, and numerous specialty gardens and plant collections. The 9,000-square-foot Anderson Education Center contains the nation’s largest open-air butterfly house and is home to turtles, button quail, tadpoles, frogs, and other critters. The Children’s Garden, made up of eight themed areas, including a dinosaur garden, storybook garden, and pollywog bog, is a popular destination for play, pretend, and hands-on learning. Seasonal festivals and exhibits include Beaks and Barks, Huntsville Blooms, the Scarecrow Trail, and the nationally recognized Galaxy of Lights. Be sure to visit our Guest Center to enjoy an art exhibit, browse our unique gift shop, or grab a bite to eat at the Dogwood Cafe. We also offer indoor and outdoor facility rental options and education programs for all ages.
The Garden is a privately run 501c3 non-profit, which receives a majority of its support from garden members, supporters, and corporate donors.
