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.

Fast forward to Nov. 2013 another family wedding. Both were outside different parts of the Gardens , the Halls are great... More

This is a great place to go for a quiet stroll. My wife and I go there, cameras in hand and just take time to take pictures, listen to the birds and enjoy the beauty... It is always interesting - not matter wihat time of year

I went to the botanical gardens today and I really enjoyed it! After some of the reviews I had seen, I was expecting it to be really run down but I didn't think that was the case. I enjoyed the pathways and they were very clean and nice. Nice little fish pond with a little red bridge... Loved the paths... More

My expectations were lowered by reading some of the reviews here, but I am passionate about gardens and can usually find something good to say. The only well-developed part of the garden is the rhododendron section, which leaves the place dull most of the year. There has clearly not been any thought given to providing year-round bloom. The herb garden... More

Beautiful gardens and great place to buy plants! They have 3 events I usually go to....Christmas time, Citrus Fest and the plant sale in the fall! Great deals on excellent plants and decorations! They are always so helpful with advice too!
