The Arlington-West End EcoScape is a community garden on Cotton Avenue at 9th Street Southwest in the Arlington-West End neighborhood. Opened in September 2004 the garden is designed for passive recreation and outdoor education. Flowerbeds and mosaic paving serve as a foreground for vistas across the neighborhood.

Partners in the garden's development were the Arlington-West End Neighborhood Association, Baptist Medical Center Princeton and Birmingham-Southern College's Southern Environmental Center.

Serving as a landmark for the garden is House Flower, an 18-foot-tall flower sculpted by Christopher Fennell from recycled roofing and timbers from a century-old home in Nectar.
