Aldridge Gardens Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Opened in 2002, this 30-acre botanical garden owned by the city of Hoover was once the home of Eddie and Kay Aldridge. Eddie and his father owned a plant nursery and were particularly renowned for patenting and propagating the snowflake hydrangea, an elegant double-blooming variant of the oakleaf hydrangea. Snowflake hydrangeas are plentiful here, along with numerous other hydrangea varieties, as well as a diverse offering of other flowers, trees, and scenery.

An easy, scenic hike around the park’s 5-acre lake gives a little dose of piney woodlands, wildflowers, and still waters. Along the way, you’re likely to meet families of ducks and geese. Follow that with an exploration of the house, it's sunny landscaped grounds, and a maze of shady gardens nearby."
