Plant sales, family festivals, member breakfasts and auctions are some of the exciting special events available at Mounts to make the experience rewarding for the whole family.
MountsBotanical Garden is Palm Beach County’s oldest and largest botanical garden. The 14 acres of gardens contain more than 2,000 species of tropical and subtropical plants, both native and exotic, of wetland and arid land, edible and poisonous. There are flowering trees and shrubs, tropical fruit trees, bromeliads, palms, herbs, roses, a vegetable garden and other specialty plants interwoven throughout the landscape. As a facility of the Palm Beach County Extension Service, which is in partnership with the University of Florida and the Friends of Mounts Botanical Garden, its goal is to provide the highest quality plant and gardening information to local residents and visitors, while promoting the preservation of our incredibly fascinating environment.
