We’ll start where I started when I first moved here. Thanks to a mutual friend in North Carolina, Susan G. was one of the first friends I made in Huntsville and the Huntsville Botanical Garden was one of the first places she took me. I knew after the first visit that this garden was going to be one of my favorite things about Huntsville and five years later, it still is. I’ve named five reasons here but I could have named 20. It’s simply one of the VERY BEST things about Huntsville and well worth the $80 family membership fee.
5 AWESOME Reasons to Join HSVBG
1. Party at the Children’s Garden.
Whether it’s a Bunny Bonanza, a garden party, a Halloween Bash, a Giant Play Day or just a Wacky Wednesday, the parties at the Garden are a great reason to buy a membership and plan frequent visits. Kids will love the activities & classes just for them, and parents will love the photo ops. BONUS: The Children’s Garden area is enclosed, making it hard for little Houdini’s to escape.
Your kids aren’t the only ones who will love hanging out at the garden. These hammocks make for some lovely sky gazing and there are plenty so you won’t have to share.
3. Animal friends.
4. A few minutes of peace.
There are numerous places for your kids to run around, and lots to do at The Garden but a favorite activity for our families is to take the time to sit still and soak up the sights and sounds all around us.
5. Nature never looked so good.
For all the family-friendly fun there is to be had at the Huntsville Botanical Garden, it can be easy to forget that first and foremost this is a botanical garden and it’s easily one of the most beautiful spots in the Tennessee Valley. Every year HBG brings a new feature or traveling exhibit that kids will love – tree houses, LEGOS, kinetic sculptures, whimsical story-themed structures… be sure to check what’s coming next!
