Progress continues on Guest Welcome Center at Huntsville Botanical Garden

Progress continues on Huntsville Botanical Garden’s new 30,000 sq. ft. Guest Welcome Center. It is designed to resemble a traditional Southern-style home. Construction began in January of 2016 and plans are to have the facility ready for use in the Spring of 2017.

A 3500 sq. ft. Atrium main entrance will be the guest center check-in. It will feature state-of-the-art resources for orientation, streamlined ticketing processing and will provide a gathering place to ensure an exceptional guest experience.

There will also be a café with both interior and patio seating for casual dining without paying garden admission. A new gift shop across from the café will more than double the current square footage.

An open mezzanine around the Atrium will offer gallery space for exhibits. This level will also include office space, restrooms, storage and a conference room with a balcony overlooking the Garden.

The building will be home to three new rental facilities to accommodate meetings, receptions, weddings and other special events. The Grand Hall will accommodate up to 350 seated guests. It will feature a catering kitchen with separate entrance, library, bride’s room, groom’s room, and a covered drop-off area.

The Carriage House is a unique facility that will open along both the east and west sides of the building allowing a casual indoor/outdoor experience at the garden for more than 200 guests.  

There will also be an elegant glass conservatory offering an intimate space for small weddings, meetings or events for up to 40 guests.

The building team for the Welcome Center includes Turner Construction, Matheny Goldmon Architecture + Interiors, 4Site Incorporated, PEC Structural Engineering and SSOE Group. 

With expanded facilities Hunt’sville’s Botanical Garden will continue to be an amazing attraction for residents and visitors to our city.
