Our Botanical Center,  renovated in 2014,  is a rustic building featuring a split cedar shake roof.  Inside, the artist-rendered acid stained concrete floor mimics the native Alabama stones used in the surrounding gardens. Exposed beams and ceiling fans complement the lodge-like feel of the large open space. Interior colors are soft gray, warm browns and white trims.  The 30 x 70ft space is lit by track lighting and decorative white lights.

Windows along the side walls give views of the surrounding gardens.  French doors open to the Woolford Plaza and Fountain on the north side, overlooking the ReBloom Garden.  The doors on the south side opens to the Herb Garden. 

A fully equipped kitchen and retro men’s and women’s restrooms round out the building’s amenities. Included in your rental, if you desire, is use of the Larkins Center catering kitchen and restrooms.   Tables and up to 100 chairs are available In addition built-in benches along  two walls can seat up to 30 adults each.   More details on size, layout and amenities are available – Botanical Center Amenities
