The Dothan Area Botanical Gardens, located in southeast Alabama, at 5130 Headland Avenue, just off U. S. Highway 431 North, consists of 50 acres of cultivated gardens, nature trails and undeveloped, wooded landscape. The DABG seeks to preserve the native plants of the area in an attractive balance with traditional botanical garden elements.
Founded in October 1990, with construction beginning in 1996, the Gardens have developed steadily under the leadership of an all-volunteer Board of Directors, which is committed to the conservation of natural resources for future generations.
The Gardens Mission is to provide an enhancement to the quality of life for Wiregrass citizens, to serve as an educational resource for children and adults in garden lore and environmental issues, and to be a vibrant area attraction that promotes tourism and economic development in southeast Alabama.
Most Garden areas are accessible to visitors with disabilities and Group Tours are available by reservation. Please allow at least two days notice for any tours.
Picnic tables are available free of charge. However, since trash receptacles are not readily available throughout the Gardens, we ask that all visitors please take their trash with them when they leave.
For the safety and enjoyment of all visitors, and to protect the Gardens, we ask that all visitors please respect the following guidelines:
