Long Description:
A sign by the love padlocks gate reads:

DABG LOCK GATE

Welcome to the DABG LOCK GATE
where friends, family, and lovers can
come to forever lock their love

The DABG has adopted this ancient
Chinese custom of symbolically
locking one's love for eternity. As
long as the lock remains on the gate,
love will endure. Place your lock
anywhere on the gate, then throw
away the key, thus uniting your love
forever.

The following information is from the Dothan Area Botanical Gardens website:

"The DABG now has our very own “Lock Gate” - located inside the Gardens, right next to the Gazebo...

You’re invited to bring a padlock to place on the Gate - to acknowledge your eternal love for your spouse, family member, favorite pet, significant other, or good friend.

This ancient and growing custom will symbolically lock your love ”forever”!

- Anytime during our normal business hours
- Bring as many locks as you want
- Make sure each lock has your initials printed or engraved on it
- It's a true one-of-a-kind gift idea for someone special - anytime of year
- No charge... just fun - and free!
- And don't forget to bring your camera!"
