The Huntsville Botanical Garden is a beautiful 120-acre site with stunning floral collections, inviting woodland paths, broad grassy meadows, aquatic areas, demonstration vegetable and herb gardens and the Nature Center. The two-acre Children’s Garden is adjacent to the Nature Center. The Garden plays an important part in stimulating the study and understanding of the sciences as students learn about the role plants – and butterflies—play in their lives.


Did you know? The Huntsville Botanical Garden is home to the nation's largest open-air, seasonal butterfly house!
