It’s pretty and it’s free! Stroll the lush gardens and wooded trails on this 67-acre property before stopping to enjoy a picnic lunch. The Birmingham Botanical Gardens is the perfect place to go when the kids need to blow off some steam (and you just need a break).
Located across the street from the Birmingham Zoo, it’s open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. most days. Parking is free.
