Huntsville Botanical Garden Unveils $16 Million Facility

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Huntsville Botanical Garden has completed a new 30,000-square-foot, $16 million facility that not only welcomes visitors with Southern hospitality, but also features three possible meeting rooms, two catering kitchens and supporting space.

The largest room, the Grand Hall, can seat up to 350 guests. The more casual Carriage House, which opens to the garden along the east and west sides of the building, can seat more than 150 people. The Glass Conservatory can entertain about 50 people.

Officials are expecting to see more than a 25 percent increase in visitors to the botanical garden, which is open year-round, because of the new facility.

The botanical garden, along with the U.S. Space and Rocket Center and the Early Works Children’s History Museum, gives Huntsville three of the top-10 tourist attractions in the state.
