Discover The Gardens

The Dothan Area Botanical Gardens consists of 50 acres of cultivated gardens, nature trails and undeveloped, wooded landscape. The DABG seeks to preserve the remarkable native plants of the area in an attractive balance with traditional botanical garden elements – and is committed to the conservation of natural resources for future generations. Admission is FREE.  Donations are appreciated and are used to help maintain The Gardens for your enjoyment!


The Wedding Garden

This is the perfect romantic setting. A formal space featuring a fountain and a large entrance pergola, wreathed in wisteria vines, along with a capacity for 600 seated guests. The altar can accomodate a wedding party of twenty. This Garden is bordered by Little Gem dwarf magnolia trees that provide an abundance of large white flowers during the Summer!  RENTAL
