Jasmine Hill Gardens Has Announced It Will Not Reopen
According to its website, Jasmine Hill Gardens of Wetumpka will not be reopening.
Jasmine Hill, known as “Alabama’s Little Corner of Greece” has more than 20 acres of gardens and classical sculptures in the Greek traditions featuring a full-scale replica of the Temple of Hera ruins.
The gardens were opened in the 1930s by the Fitzpatrick family.
Jasmine Hill Gardens, which is run by a non-profit foundation, hosted countless weddings and school groups over the years.
The announcement says it’s hard to know what the future holds.
Elmore DeMott of the Jasmine Hill Foundation says there are no plans to re-open the gardens or to make them available for rental, such as for weddings. But care will be given to maintain the plants, trees and flowers.
