For a nominal entrance fee these beautifully maintained gardens are a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Various garden exhibits from vegetables to florals, succulents and cactus give the perfect way to get ideas for planting or for gardening in Florida. I recommend this place highly

There was a lot to see but I was a little disappointed that some areas were not very accessible for a wheelchair. I did like the variety of things to see and most everything was well marked which is not always the case at a botanical garden.

We spent 1 hour meandering through the different gardens - definitely worth a $10 donation upon entry. Gorgeous views.

Unexpectedly across from the airport, this location is not a typical place for a peaceful botanical gardens, however Mounts is idyllic and zen. Amazing display of a variety of flora and some great water features to go along with them. Very helpful staff and plenty of benches for breaks along the trails.

Love Mounts Botanical garden located on Military Trail, off Southern Blvd. Great for locals, kids, families and events, Mounts is a compact garden that allows you the freedom to roam, explore, take a tour, or just relax. There's a modest sized gift store, many events and always amazing trees, shrubs and flowers in bloom. It's a treasure in Palm Beach... More

If you love plants, butterflies, interesting trees and don't mind an occasional jet overhead you need to stop in. The suggested donation is 5$ per adult. Worth it! They have many different species of palm trees which we loved. We were there in October when many things were still in summer bloom. I will definitely go back when I'm in... More

There's a variety of interesting, labelled plants. Good for the grandparents, who don't like to walk as much. When my group went, they were displaying amazing LEGO statues. It's near an airport, so there will be some airplane takeoff noise occasionally, though it is a good chance to take a picture of a plane.

Located so close to the airport that the quiet beauty is sometimes interrupted by a plane flying overhead, Mounts is an oasis of tropical and subtropical plants in the midst of the city. Not so expansive that a visitor will get exhausted walking through the many gardens, this place is filled with an abundance of trees and plants, all with... More

I can't believe they request $10 per person. The garden is OK, but not very extensive or special. I have been to many more lavish gardens than this. And most University botanical gardens do not charge an admission price. We were done in 20 minutes.

This is a wonderful walk, usually not for kids. But, our grandkids loved to walk in search of the next Lego display. Great idea all.
