The parking lot and Garden Center, including the Library at Birmingham Botanical Gardens, are barrier-free facilities as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). During operating hours of the Garden Center, complimentary wheelchairs are available to check out at the Receptionist's desk on a first-come, first-served basis.
While it is a major goal of our upcoming master plan update to improve accessibility throughout The Gardens, much of the site is currently not barrier-free and assistance will be necessary. Nevertheless, many paths and garden areas have hard surfaces throughout and offer numerous visiting opportunities.
Golf Cart Tour for People with Mobility Impairments
We offer tours of selected areas of The Gardens by golf cart for people with genuine mobility impairments. These are available for individuals and small groups, but must be scheduled two weeks in advance of visit. To make arrangements, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Taylor Steele at 205.414.3962 or email@example.com.
