Walk through the gardens and find your inner peace and serenity. Sit and reflect at any number of tucked away benches. Watch the koi from the bridge or observation deck. Great, peaceful day.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon, during Spring Break. It was quite busy. The gardens are not that big, easily seen in 1.5 hours, give or take. A large variety of plants, flowers, trees and shrubs. A gazebo, water features, and seating here and there round out the attraction. We saw several small birds. The parking and access is easy.... More

We spent half a day there and took over 200 photos. What a beautiful, colorful, well kept garden. Actually many different gardens and themes. We enjoyed a packed lunch overlooking gorgeous flower beds. Ponds stocked with Koi as well as various species of frogs, amphibians and turtles. The gardens attracted many birds and butterflies as well. Our last visit was... More

What a beautiful oasis! We weren't sure if our kids would love this place, but they did. It is beautiful and well-maintained with plants and trees growing around sculptures, bridges, ponds, and other natural and man-made features. The kids loved the butterfly garden, the hedge maze, the bridge and pond, and the garden of well-being where they enjoyed smelling all... More

At a most unlikely (and easy to miss) location directly across from the back side of PBI airport at 559 Military Trail, the entrance to Mounts Botanical Gardens leads to 14 acres of a very walkable preserve of tropical and subtropical plants both native to Florida and imported from far corners of the world. Open weekdays from 10 am to... More

This garden is rich with activity. In my opinion the design choices are average, but there are plenty of ideas and a great diversity of plant selections to enjoy and/or consider using in your own landscape. Take along a headset and your own natural sounds--to drown out the frequent arriving and departing air traffic passing close overhead.

The botanical garden is worth visiting. Visitors will enjoy a variety of gardens that represent flora found in Florida. The garden features common plants & flowers as well as very unique sub tropical species. Be prepared to tolerate noisy airline jets landing in a close by WPB International Airport.

Beautiful gardens for everyone. The gardens depends on donations and grants. They also have a great program for the new gardener. Spend the day wandering and learning. Sit by the lake and enjoy the sound of the birds. Take in the beauty.
