Upon my arrival, a shaded parking lot welcomed me. The day had quickly become sultry, so I appreciated the tall pines all the more. I quickly got lost in the tea maze, but it kept my interest with all the lovely japonica varieties. The reclaimed iron works through out the garden really lent a historical Mobilian flavor to this green... More

We had my daughter's wedding here and it was beautiful. Surrounded by acres of lush blooms and woodland with various themes it made for a breathtaking wedding and reception.

A very nice walk among the well cared for plants and landscape. Would like to be here when the camellias are in bloom. The tea camellia maze especially interesting. We felt a strong Asian influence. Our membership at the Edison Ford Winter Estate Garden gave us free admission.

We visited during the flower sale and didn't realize the gardens were closed. We asked a worker about it and she said she was the director and we could go ahead and tour gardens and even gave us a map. Amazing azalea collection! The camelia garden was superior. All dif. varieties and colors!

This was a fantastic find! Beautiful flowers and even some cacti! The buildings were all closed but we walked around the grounds. Brought my dog with me and it was fine. Just had to clean up after him.

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
