I have been visiting here for years, very reasonable entrance fee. Beautiful at anytime of the year. Places to leisurely stroll and relax, great place for photographs and the southern place for weddings.

We came after more than 20 years of having not been here due to crime in the area. My niece is a budding photographer and wanted to take photos. They charged her $25 and my husband and I $5 each. The flower beds were riddled...More

There are areas of the grounds that are quite beautiful, especially around the pond. On the other hand, there are other areas that are seemingly devoid of flowers/interesting plant life. When I visited, for some reason the entrance door was locked even though the gardens...More

There are beautiful flowers, peaceful surroundings and just about every "green" thing that will grow in the South. Grounds were very well kept. Good sidewalks. The trails were okay but could have used more rock or so I thought. The only negative thing I have...More

Took my 3 yr old princess today and we loved it. We have been to the Butterfly exhibit and Bayou Bend Gardens in Houston. Going to local gardens has become a small tradition for us. The Mynelle Gardens are exquisite. A must go for everyone!...More

Having lived in Jackson for over 20 years, I finally decided to visit Mynelle Gardens. Some reviewers mention safety of the area, but I never felt unsafe during my visit. The gardens are maintained by the City of Jackson, so it is understandable that maintaining...More
