A wonderful trailed botanical garden, casual but most plants/trees are named for you. Good landscape architecture - water falls, benches to stop and rest - smell the flowers. Beautiful trees - seems some plants are taking turns blooming during all seasons.

We didn't know what to expect when he pulled into the parking lot. I wasn't too keen either given my call to the Garden the day before inquiring about the operational hours and cost. Imagine my surprise when the woman on the phone said the cost is a "suggested donation of $5". I asked how long does it take to... More

I decided to drive in to the area to see the Gardens and was very pleased I did. I have seen several botanical gardens within an hour of here, and this is by far the best. The gardens are well planned. There are paths you can follow to each different garden. The area itself is not very large, so if... More

I'm a botanical garden fan and I've been wanting to get to Mounts Botanical Garden for a few years - timing and rainy weather has prevented it until today. This botanical garden is near the West Palm Beach airport, and after my husband and I dropped my best friend off for her return flight home this morning, we headed to... More

Mounts is right by the airport on a main road so I was not expecting much. The garden exceeded my expectations. It does not take long to walk the property but it is very peaceful, attractive and unique. I recommend going.

Great paths wind around beautiful plantings, flowers and trees. There were things I had never seen before. There are plaques on the trees that tell you the names, and some information about them. Beautiful flowering trees and plants!

If you like to relax and enjoy the views of a well landscaped garden. This is the place. Ever turn brought you to different types of plant life. Very educational for all ages. The only negative for those of us that are not familiar with the plants and trees names is to have more signage added. I look forward to... More

If you like strolling through gardens, admiring the flora and fauna, you will love this place. I particularly love the two butterfly gardens, the herb garden and the old fashioned vegetable garden. So much to look at and keep your interest. One delightful area after another to discover. There are several picnic tables so you have a place to eat... More

After reading reviews I though this would be a great place to relax and view some of the tropical flowers and foliage that we don't see in Massachusetts. I am an avid gardener and was very disappointed in the lack of flowers and the little variety that was there. I thought the condition of many of the specimens was poor... More
