We visited the Botanical Gardens in August and were very disappointed. Most of the areas did not look to be taken very good care of and were run-down. The rose garden barely had any roses at all. The area in front of the office was beautiful, but that was the only area that was. Several of the paths were overgrown... More

In this botanical garden has free admission and had a nice variety of azaleas, ferns, trees, and even an herb garden. A very pleasant oasis in the city and convenient to the Springhill neighborhood. Nice walking paths and well maintained

I go every time we are near Mobile. It is always changing and always a beautiful place for a walk. One of my favorite gardens in the U.S.A

What a beautiful place to visit. The holiday decorations are amazing during Halloween and Christmas. During others times of year different blooms are always happening. The cascading mums are my favorite!

I love the outdoors in May. This was my kind of place, it gave me some great ideas for my yard. I went early it was so peaceful and even seen a baby armadillo off one of the trails.

We arrived shortly before dusk. There were a few cars in the parking lot but no one in sight. We put our $10 in the donation bin and started exploring. I thought I had seen it all and by the time it got dark I realized I had only seen about 10%. I would have stayed til the last bit... More

Loved the botanical gardens! The volunteers were working to prepare for the celebration of their 40th year and they were very hospitable, taking time away from their work to greet us and speak with us about the gardens and Mobile. The gardens had a great number of azalea varieties - all were blooming in April! Their herb garden was nice,... More

For a $5 donation, you get to wander around the gardens as long as you like. When I visited, only the winter garden was in bloom, and it was still well worth it.

We had a great time at the botanical gardens! If you are going to visit during the summer, go early in the morning before it gets super hot!

Visited here on Christmas Day. The facility itself was closed, but the gardens were open for a casual walk. The gardens are small, but very nicely laid out and even in winter a joy to walk through.
