Entry sign reading Mobile Botanical Gardens, 5151 Museum DriveAdjacent to Langan Park, the Gardens encompasses a 100-acre site of cultivated gardens, woodland trails, and a longleaf pine restoration. Established in 1974 by a dedicated group of horticulturists to preserve the natural aspects of the local environment, the Gardens have grown and developed into an oasis for the community. The Gardens are open to the Public dawn to dusk everyday of the year – but access during non-office hours (M-F after 5PM and holidays/weekends) is only allowed through the pedestrian gate.

Dedicated to preserving native plants and to educating the community, the Mobile Botanical Gardens encompasses an extensive variety of cultivated areas and collections. A non-profit 501(c)3 organization, The Gardens holds fundraising events during the year to raise money for its ongoing operations and maintenance.
