Pathway at Aldridge Gardens

If you are looking for a great place to visit that is inexpensive and fun, try the beautiful local attraction of Aldridge Gardens Hoover Alabama.

Recently, my family and I spent a wonderful afternoon at Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, Alabama.

We took a picnic lunch from a local barbeque place and ate under the tall canopy of trees that made the day feel so much cooler than it actually was.

Then we spent some time on the little covered boat dock feeding the turtles, geese, and huge carp that gathered in large numbers around the dock hoping for a treat.

The pathway around the lake is mostly shaded, so even in the heat of the afternoon summer sun,  we were able to walk around the lake and enjoy the view of the original lake home of the Aldridge family. This home is in a beautiful setting, and is a great place for private parties.

As the day was winding down, we ended up in the large party pavilion with built-in benches. A soft breeze blew through, and we sat and talked while the geese trouped up from the lake for a visit.

With its great “heart of Hoover” location, and so many wonderful places to sit and read, or just enjoy nature,  I know our family will be back to spend many more relaxing afternoons in Aldridge Gardens Hoover Alabama, a  great places to visit.

    Thank you for introducing Hoover Alabama. Actually, I have not yet visited. I am still planning to go there, but not specifically to Hoover. I am planning to visit one of my relatives in Alabama and we will be able to conduct some business ventures there. I forgot the specific place where my cousin is residing. Upon reading this blog, I will really suggest to go in Hoover. The photos you shared are really nice. The environment there seem so peaceful and clean. I am looking forward to go there soon.
