Beautiful gardens with lots of incredible plants and water features and benches to sit and take it all in. I love that it is free and it’s also right across from the zoo so I usually go to both while I’m in the area. It’s a beautiful place to take a walk, read a book, have a picnic, or take photos. The gift shop is really lovely as well.

I visited here a few months ago when I travelled from the West on over for a wedding.
This place was really nice and clean. The staff were nice and courteous, and honestly I have no complaints. Botanical Gardens are one of mans greatest inventions.
The crowning piece for me is the gigantic koi pond they have in their Japanese section. The fish themselves are HUGE and they have plenty of turtles swimming around which is heartwarming. Even after an exhausting day this place was refreshing and I’m glad I went.

This is an awesome park! Beautiful with many, many amenities. The staff is great! However, the campground sites are not laid out well with only 30amp and the restrooms are very outdated. A 5 for the park and 3 for the campground = 4. I would highly recommend if you are in the area and don't miss out on the Birmingham Botanical Garden!

Awesome state park with many activities, but the price for an annual pass is ridiculous in my opinion.

This is an incredible park to visit! It’s HUGE and includes horseback riding, a golf course, playground, kayak & paddle boat rental, swimming area, and more! There were very nice bathroom facilities at all parking areas. Gorgeous views. Drive through road and tons of hiking trails with bridges. Wish we had more than a few hours, I think you could spend several days exploring and still not see it all!
Stickers, magnets, T-shirt’s and stuffed animals at the park office, but very small selections.

The science museum is an awesome place for a day trip, and the kids loved it. I'm very surprised that it was not busier. It was practically empty.
Our kids loved being able to pet the sting rays and the tiny town.

We had 1 senior, 2 adults, 2 kids, and parking, and it was around $75.

They change features out, so there's something new every few months.

We had a great time. My daughter is 9 and there were a lot of fun things for her to enjoy. Several stations were either not working or closed due to Covid. I would still recommend, but am excited to go again once everything is back open.

What a fantastic place to hike. Miles of trails to explore. There are several wonderful waterfalls to see. I personally enjoy the more Northern end of the preserve, it is less traveled by others and has more elevation changes for hikes. Love Moss Rock

Entrances were hard to find. The trails are all over the place and none looked to be blazed. The map was hard to distinguish with the trails and the kiosk did not mark the starting area. Plus, it's in the middle of a shopping/neighborhood development. If you're looking for a real trail, skip this one.

Honestly? If you're looking for a place to take your kids for a fun day out, a place to walk your dogs or even just to take a nice peaceful walk, this is the place!

Nice long trial that leads to a beautiful pond where you can go fish or just relax on one of the benches. Also a nice play area for the kids that includes a swing set, slides, and much more!

This has been my go-to spot for over 10 years! Take a visit man, you won't regret it!

So can somebody please tell me why I've been in Birmingham area for almost 25 years and have passed the Aldrich Gardens sign on Lorna Road a gazillion times and didn't even notice it.😔😔😔 This spot is amazing. Wonderful walking trails, beautiful view of the lake and just adorable geese or ducks! They also have a venue you can rent for events. I will definitely be going back to take a run in the park. If one day you have some time and you are rolling on Lorna Road, whip right on in and take a look! You might just be pleasantly surprised! 🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️
Take a look at my photos!! Enjoy!!!🙂

Beautiful small park with lots to see! The pond is gorgeous with the changing leaves. We arrived around 9 on a Saturday morning and there was hardly anyone there. Perfect morning walk with sunbathing turtles and a Herron. I would go back here in a heartbeat!

I love the olive oils and balsamic vinegar flavors. They are excellent on salads and as a marinade for meats. The staff are very knowledgeable about how to pair the two for some awesome flavors. So for the products alone, 5stars! But, the owner was not wearing a mask and that's a big problem for me so that decreased my rating to 3 stars. Do better... we're in a pandemic... 😷 up when you're dealing with customers.

Just...just go. I've never had olive oil this good outside of fresh-pressed oil at a fine dining restaurant. And even then, maybe the stuff here is better.

And the infusion flavors, as far as I've tasted, are all done exceedingly well. The traditional balsamic is good enough to go on pizza, fish, and vanilla ice cream. Yup. The owner suggested ice cream and she wasn't lying.

The balsamics really flavor up some sparkling water, FYI.

Made it to the trail late in the evening, but the fields and area was beautiful still; the lightening bugs were quite entertaining. Always looking for a great place to walk. Definitely will be back to enjoy a stroll, the bridge, the atmosphere, and the overall calm of this great hidden treasure.

Lovely small park with a paved walkway, a fenced dog park and steps down to the Cahaba River. It feels like a small cutout from Oak Mountain that was installed on the side of Overton Road. It’s such a nice pocket of nature so close to home!

This is a real cool park that I almost passed up seeing because from the satellite view it looks like just a parking lot. That’s because it’s a short walking trail that leads to the monument. I’m from Nevada, visiting while on a cross country road trip. For those who don’t know, Nevada is desert country. We don’t have trials like this, which made the trail an exciting and unique experience on its own. There was a feeling of peace and calm as I walked and heard the crunching of the leaves. Something I’m sure locals to the area and neighboring states know well.

The walk took roughly 5 minutes to reach the monument. It was real cool to walk and see what each pillar represented. There was also a sacred room that listed each Alabamian who has served our county. I was hit with a strong sense of pride viewing this monument. America is great because of the sacrifices that so many have made. This Nevadan is proud and thankful to our veterans.
