This garden is one of our favorite places to go for a walk. It has beautiful professionally maintained landscape. Lots of hidden paths with a great variety of plants. Low-flying planes are extra bonus for photographers.

Parking is free. There is a small admission fee, but I know some who have gone and said they paid nothing, as when they visited it was an "optional" donation". The gardens are beautiful and full of native and exotic plants. The garden is bigger than most backyards, but if you are expecting anything on the size/scale of Butchart Gardens... More

Beautiful and much larger than anticipated. If only it wasn't adjacent to airport with jets constantly taking off/landing overhead. If not for the noisy jets and neighboring music, this would be a solid 5 star. Lots of hard work has gone into these gardens and it deserves a tranquil location.

What a beautiful place! I love to explore all the nature preserves and botanical gardens in the area and this was one of my favorites. The only cost is a donation and I was inspired to give more after I walked through. The place is so big! It can take you hours if you take your time or can serve... More

We love this Garden. We take leisurely strolls many times a year, sometimes bringing lunch to have at the beautiful gazebo pavillion. Primarily we just unwind and absorb the tranquility all around us.

Whatever a gardener or photographer looks for, it will likely be at Mounts. Only 14 acres, yet it's home to a variety of model gardens for homeowners to use as inspiration. The garden uses no chemicals, I'm told, meaning the plants are selected carefully. Adjacent is the UF/USDA/Palm Beach Co. extension office where free plant advice is available from master... More

I live quite close to Mounts and did not even know it existed until recently. This is the perfect place to go for a relaxing morning or afternoon walk. Beautiful gardens with plenty of places to photograph nature at its finest. It is very peaceful and quiet. A great place to relax and enjoy quiet time amid the beautiful gardens.... More

Just want to escape into the nice quiet country. Well this is a spot right in the middle of town. Beautifully maintained gardens interesting walk nice people to talk to and beautiful quiet surroundings. Do yourself a favor and visit this wonderful garden but be sure to leave a small donation to keep the gardens beautiful.

Saturday was my second visit in a month. I was there taking photos with a group and besides my beautiful photos, I received no less than 50 mosquito bites (I used Off Deep Woods). With the rise in mosquito borne viruses such as CHIKV and dengue spreading to So. Florida, It behooves the MBG management to spray to keep the... More
