None of my family who lives nearby had ever heard of this garden. My sister and niece accompanied me on the day I visited. We were all pleasantly surprised by the beautiful gardens we discovered inside. This was WELL worth the $5 requested donation to access the garden.

I love this place. Is a relax place to walk, talk with friends or simply made a picnic. I love it! This is my place to getaway for the city noise... :) no admission fee. If you want, leave donation. Bring mosquito repellent, water and sunblock.

This is 14 acres of the 20th "Mounts Botanical Garden" plant sale. It features 80 vendors with plants, garden gear, and accessories. Admission $10. One exhibit hall features: American Hibiscus Society. the other hall: Rose Society. The key for me is horticulturists are available to answer questions on plant culture.

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
