A Pretty Spring Day

I visited Mynelle Gardens on a pretty April afternoon. The lady at the front desk was very nice. The azaleas were in bloom so it was quite colorful. The grounds were well-kept and... read more

Mynelle has a rich history and is so beautiful! Be aware that you are nearing a bad part of town, but don't let that dissuade you from making the trip. It's totally worth it - and it's safe. A great spot to take pictures, whether for fun or professionally. A must see in Jackson for sure. It's only $4 to... More

What a great place to visit, particularly when the spring flowers are in bloom. We are fortunate to have this treasure preserved in our city.

I live in a suburb outside of Jackson and would NOT visit Mynelle Gardens. This place is located in a very bad part of Jackson. You better be well armed!

I visited Mynelle Gardens on a pretty April afternoon. The lady at the front desk was very nice. The azaleas were in bloom so it was quite colorful. The grounds were well-kept and clean. I was a littler disappointed to see a blue tarp on the part of the Westbrook House roof. Otherwise a very enjoyable time.

The gardens have so much potential. It is obvious that care is not being taken for the existing plants and grounds. Most of the color was added by recently planted pansies. Staff was very nice. Just sad.

We visited before the official season but the very nice young woman working there, Linda Clark, was very gracious and let us take a walk even though it was late in the afternoon, after 4 pm. There were a few things blooming even so early in the season like the early bulbs, camilias and and helebores. There were many turtles... More

It is now in a sketchy neighborhood but well worth the trip (just be SAFE!) When I was growing up it was *the* place for portrait sessions and one of the most spectacular gardens in town. I'm ever so happy they are still around.

Great place to photograph children,brides etc. Well done. Not the safest place in town though. Lock your car.

Maybe it was because we visited in the Fall.. but a lot of grounds are over grown and dead. I am sure it's much nicer in the Spring when everything is in bloom. Maybe we will try again in the Spring if we are back in the area.

Not in the best of areas, but still a good garden to visit. Very beautiful areas.
