Are you in search of a unique way to explore the West Palm Beach area? Perhaps you’re ready to get off the beach (for at least a little bit)? Well, our crew at Carl’s Van Rentals agrees that you should check out a local favorite: Mounts Botanical Garden.
Mounts Botanical Garden is a part of the greater Palm Beach County public gardens—and it just so happens to be the oldest and the largest. When the gardens were initially created in the 1920s, they were mostly a collection of fruit trees. However, today the gardens have grown and expanded to include:
- Begonia Garden
- Butterfly Garden
- Children’s Maze
- An Edible Landscape
- Gazebo Garden
- And more
You can always find something in bloom year round and even take something home for yourself at the Mounts Nursery.
Hours & Admission
Because the mission of Mounts Botanical Garden is to allow access to as many people as possible as an educational initiative, admission is free to members and asks for a $5 suggested donation for other adults and children over age 12. This rate allows children and large families to experience a unique side of West Palm Beach without going broke. You can visit the gardens seven days a week between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
If you’re visiting the Palm Beach area, consider renting a van from Carl’s. We have a wide selection of reliable minivans, passenger vans, and Jeeps that makes exploring the area easy and affordable. You can easily pick up a van from our West Palm Beach location and return it here when you’re done, or you can return it to one of our other multiple locations across the state. To find out more or to make a reservation, contact Carl’s of West Palm Beach today at (561) 469-9200, or book online at your convenience.
