We got our lunch to go and stopped here to break up our road trip. The park is pet friendly making it an ideal lunch spot with the pup. I did not see a lot of the trails, though my friend said there were a lot of labels for the trees along the paths. Not much to see in the... More

The camellias where in bloom and the Dark Shadows magnolia trees. Still a lot of greenery, but that was about if for flowering plants. Never the less it was still beautiful and the grounds cover a lot of area. It only took me about 30 minutes to walk around the gardens but there are trails there if you'd like to... More

Little is going on during the winter but the camelias were in full bloom and beautiful. The walks are grassed, not paved, so are comfortable. There is abundant shade for summer. The person in the office was vety kind and helpful. Its dog friendly.

I have read a number of the reviews posted on M.B.G. and they are on point for the most part.... I live nearby and have a slightly educated appreciation for what is there. It is a civic endeavor on behalf of Mobiles citizens and visitors. It is not a highly advertised location, yet it is utilized well by local residents.... More

I'm sure the gardens are glorious with color in the Spring so our timing (October)was less than ideal. Still, it provided a lovely walk in a beautiful area. A real plus is that the gardens are located amid Langan Park and Longleaf Forest making it easy to combine a visit to the gardens with a visit to the beautiful and... More

Late September wedding, rain stayed away. The employees had prepared for an outdoor ceremony with an indoor location as a backup if the rain fell. No A/C in reception area that I could notice but it wasn't bad.

The parking area is a decent trek away from the main office, which is reasonable... If there were signs directing you to where the office was. When I finally located the place, the lady who gave me my ticket was very nice (And quite honestly the only reason that I didn't give this review a 1/5). The map she gave... More

Azaleas in Sept...a nice surprise. And a few other flowers like ginger. They are reciprocal so it was free to us. But only $5 ...a great value. It has a new owner and very well kept.

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
