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... read more

Nice grounds but not much to see and do. Wouldn't make a special trip unless they are having a plant sale.

Do yourself a favor and visit the Mobile Botanical Gardens. It is a gem, full of native plants, and a camellia garden that is like a fantasyland. You will be refreshed as you go through the more formal areas, but don't miss a walk in the woods. Every visit reveals something new. Another treasured area in the Gardens is the... More

Easy walking and lovely gardens. See the new Dragonfly and the koi pond. Visit the Aromi camellia area and the herb area. Long leaf forest right in the middle of the park that abuts it.

Traveling to the Botanical gardens in the winter is a must do. Walking throughout the lights and seeing the beauty of the gardens that are enhanced by lights is such a mesmerizing experience. Make sure you grab a cup of hot coco!

We spent an entire afternoon here enjoying the calm, watching the trees (it was outside bloom season). The trails are not that long (it can be done in 1.5h I think) but you can sit on a bench and just relax. A very nice place. It needs to be

Recently visited on our way to Gulf Shores, but unfortunately most flowers/shrubs are not blooming this time of year. Still a nice walk with several shaded areas and not too pricey. Does not compare to Bellingrath (Theordore) or Brookgreen (Murrells Inlet, SC), but it was just the right stop on our trip, nice to get out and walk around and... More

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.
