“Location is not good”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

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!

“A Pretty Spring Day”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

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.

“Potential is there not well kept”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

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.

“I nice place to unwind.”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

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 sunning themselves and it was very peaceful. I would love to return when the gardens would be ready for the season but it was still a time well spent. It was a bit hard for us to find it since we have never been to this part of Mississippi before but the gps was a big help. Hopefully we will return.

“Beautiful throwback to another time...”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

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.
