  • These gardens are easy to find, shaded, & well maintained. We enjoyed an afternoon walk along the lake. We toured the art in the home. Restrooms were clean.

  • Lovely gardens, even on a cloudy day. Had a peaceful walk around the 5 acre lake and enjoyed exploring the flora, fauna, and art twined throughout the grounds’ other trails. One trail is a storybook walk for kids that features an area for gnomes and their homes. Butterflies, ducks, fish, and honeybees were spotted. Well-placed seating throughout the grounds. The building in the center of the gardens, Aldridge House, showcases artwork (most of which is for sale) from various artists throughout the year and displays historical documents of the gardens’ beginnings. There is a gift shop as well. Very kind staff members. Overall, I highly recommend a visit to this free public garden - a Hoover gem.
  • Peaceful, serene, and beautiful-what a place to unwind and relax. See and buy gorgeous flowers. Have a picnic lunch. Take a stroll around the lake. Watch the turtles. Get married! A lovely place for you friends and family to enjoy your wedding with you.
