What I love about Mounts is the somewhat hidden location. It's located next the the DMV...but once you enter the front gate you are transported to a beautiful magical rose filled garden. I love brining a book and a bottled water, finding a private enclave and enjoy the fresh air!

This lovely garden had a nice variety of plant life and was fun to wander around in. It was hot when we were there, and there were mosquitoes, so we didn't linger, but still enjoyed ourselves. Next time I'd like to spend more time and see if there was more information available about the plants. (

We found this attraction during our stay from the UK, and it was a fabulous find. There was no charge but they asked for a donation which we were more than happy to pay after spending two hours looking around. The grounds were so well cared for and the variety and colour of plants were wonderful. Each turn took you... More

I love, love this place. The first time I discovered it I fell in love ever since then I always try to go when I can. It's a very quiet beautiful nature spot, perfect for people who love Nature like I do & it's also perfect for photoshoots they have so many cute little places to photograph couples or family...

It's a well cared for, shaded area to walk around. Went there with my mother. Perhaps alot 60-90 min or so to spend here. My favorite part was the herb garden. Lots of different plants from different parts of the world. Beautiful flowers and plants all throughout. Very impressive. I'd go again. They accept donations of $5 in a drop... More

For those with an interest in local plant life, this is a nice place to visit and walk around. Lots of well-marked plants, huge range, nice spots to sit and relax for a few minutes. Right next to the airport, however, so expect regular flyovers by aircraft of every size.

They have a large variety of palms and tropical plants, and in a nice educational and not so profit-greedy setting. The experience is marred a bit by flight noise as it is directly in the flight path of the airport which is only 1 mile away.

Great garden spot full of tropical plants, shrubs, and trees while visiting the Palm Beaches! You can stroll for quite a while in this pristine, well-manicured garden spot!

This is a large and diverse botanical garden run by the County of Palm Beach Florida. It has many public facilities for instruction. Most of all as photos attest it is scenic! TIP---spend a couple of hours here. We saw it in off season and it still was spectacular!

Beautiful, relaxing, worth the time to walk through. The only detriment is the planes flying overhead.
