  • Mission Statement

    Come Here to Grow

    Mobile Botanical Gardens provides experiences that help visitors of all ages appreciate and benefit from our unique Gulf Coast environment.

    The Gardens serve as a living classroom for residents and visitors alike. By providing a sense of place, we endeavor to instill passion for nature, and promote interest in gardening, conservation, and outdoor activities.

  • When You Visit

    Please leave nothing but your footprints.

    Please respect the natural habitat of many plants and wildlife. Please do not take flowers, leaves or seeds.

    Pets are welcome on leashes. Doggy stations are located around the Gardens: please use them.

    Professional photography sessions must be scheduled in advance. Call the office at 251-342-055 to schedule.

    Bikes are only allowed on roads and on the bike trail in the Longleaf Forest. Please do not ride on other paths or sidewalks.
