Mobile Botanical Gardens



The Mobile Botanical Gardens are located in Mobile, Alabama.  They were founded in 1974 and cover over 100 acres.  They include a beautiful Rhododendron Garden, a Fern Glade, Fragrance and Texture garden, Japanese Maple Garden, and Herb garden.  There's also a 40 acre long-needle pine forest with walking trails, perfect for an afternoon hike.



Admission is $5.00 for adults.  Children 12 and under are free.  The gardens are open daily from dawn to dusk.

  4. Hi Sherry. Being in the UK, I read the title of this post and thought 'How can a garden be mobile?' I imagined huge trucks driving through cities with gardens laid out out so that kids could see some greenery. Ah well, never mind.

  5. Good luck with computer issues - that is so frustrating. We drove through Alabama two years ago and it was a pretty state. Rather lush. I'm sure that garden is gorgeous.
