Be sure to visit during later spring or summer if you truly want to see some flowers. My first trip was in fall when everything had died out so I am planning on going back again soon.

We visited Mobile for just a couple dys.So hoped to see the gardens. Went out of our way to get there to find it closed for a private event mid week. Extremely bummed.

I spent about 45 minutes walking around the gardens. I suppose I would have seen many more flowers in the summer months. I love gardens and it was slightly disappointing.

From their web site. "Pets are allowed at the Gardens as long as they remain on a leash. Also, please clean up after your pet. There are several pet stations throughout the Gardens and the Longleaf Forest."

I think it was 5$? Free parking. If your a member at your local Botanic Garden then you get in free as part of member perks.
