Cell Phone Audio Tour

In this dynamic young garden you will find inviting woodland paths, stunning floral collections and exhibits to delight visitors of all ages.

Paths meander through the shady woodlands of the Dogwood Trail and the lush fern glade, while native wildflowers quietly populate the Nature Trail. Daylily and herb gardens rival or surpass those of older, more mature botanical gardens. The demonstration vegetable garden showcases varieties of produce and inspires home gardeners.

The 5-acre Central Corridor Gardens, featuring aquatic, perennial, and annual displays are ablaze with color from early spring through fall. The Garden of Hope celebrates life and affords a place for quiet contemplation and observation of nature.

The summer of 2006 saw the completion of the Nature Center and Children's Garden complex: the largest seasonal butterfly house in the nation, where brightly colored butterflies live in their natural habitat, turtles sun themselves on rocks, frogs croak, and the rush of a waterfall takes you to a place of serenity, combined with a place where children can delight in a garden of their very own, where they can hide in a Secret Garden; host a special birthday party in the Half-Acre Wood; view aquaponics in action inside the Space Garden's real space ship; and see the world through a kaleidoscope of colors in the Rainbow Garden.A unique audio tour throughout the Garden allows visitors to use their cell phones to hear about various features and attractions in the Garden. To operate the system, locate one of the Audio Tour signs, dial the phone number listed and press the item number followed by the # sign. It's that simple. A 30- to 90-second message is played for each of the 19+ stops around the Garden. This innovative program, provided by Guide By Cell of San Francisco, California, is the first of its kind in the state of Alabama. Other gardens and museums throughout the country use this program successfully to inform, educate, and direct visitors around their facilities. There is no charge for the service, but there may be charges from your cell phone company, depending on your cell phone plan.
