Now celebrating 40 years and with a mission to “inspire and educate through nature,” Mounts Botanical Garden is Palm Beach County’s oldest and largest botanical garden. Located behind Palm Beach International Airport, the Garden is a hidden gem that is being discovered every day! Mounts is a favorite with nature photographers, gardeners and visitors looking for a serene experience filled with beauty and the surprises of nature’s art. The Garden also offers informative classes, workshops and other fun-filled events.
Visitors to this 14-acre tropical oasis will see an acclaimed collection of 25 unique garden areas containing more than 2,000 species of tropical and sub-tropical plants, including Florida native plants, exotic and tropical fruit trees, herbs, palms, roses, cactus, bromeliads and much more. The award-winning Windows on the Floating World is one of the newer gardens, completed in 2017 and a guest favorite. The centerpiece of the Garden is beautiful Lake Orth, where an island overlook gives visitors a great view of the Koi and turtles that are in abundance.
Mounts Botanical Garden is open daily (except Palm Beach County recognized holidays) from 10 am to 4 pm. The Garden is part of the Palm Beach County Extension Department, in partnership with the University of Florida and the non-profit Friends of the Mounts Botanical Garden.
