Having completed a $16-million project, the new Eloise McDonald Propst Guest Center is now open and is the first “face” you see when you come onto the grounds of the Huntsville Botanical Gardens at 4747 Bob Wallace Avenue in Huntsville.
Thousands of new plants are in the ground and are busy blooming to the delight of all. Their fragrance as you enter the building let you know you’re in for a visual and sensual treat.
Once inside, you will immediately notice the Gift Shop with its beautiful temptations.
A new cafe is now up and running in the Guest Center. Table in the Garden is owned by Jake Reed who also owns Albany Bistro in Decatur. Table is a casual eatery with both indoor and outdoor seating. Reed and his staff offer full catering for events at the Botanical Gardens. Many weddings and events are already on the calendar for the coming months.
Behind the Guest Center, a new lake and walkways have been added. I urge you to visit soon and savor all the newness and excitement in the air.
