The 14-acre Mounts Botanical Garden is Palm Beach County's oldest and largest public garden with over 2,000 species of tropical and subtropical plants from six continents, including plants native to Florida, exotic trees, tropical fruit, herbs, citrus and palms.
Self-guided tours focus on highlighting a different aspect of the collection. The Art in the Garden
self-guided walking tour focuses on the permanent art collection. Learn about the artists and stories behind some of the Garden’s iconic sculptures, explore the way art is incorporated in our landscape design, and discover the behind the scenes of living sculpture.
Windows on the Floating World – Blume Tropical Wetland Garden features open-gridded, 4-foot wide walkways on the surface of the wetlands to give visitors the feeling of “walking on water.” Within these walks are four “windows” planted with aquatics and changed out with rotating and seasonal botanical exhibits growing from submerged containers. Among many other garden environments are a Garden of Tranquility, a Dry Stream Bed, a Tropical Forest, and a Butterfly Garden.
Mounts is operated by the Palm Beach County Cooperative Extension Service and is affiliated with the University of Florida.
