By the Numbers

1974: The year a band of horticulturists founded Mobile Botanical Gardens to preserve the local environment
100: The number of acres filled with cultivated gardens, woodland trails, and longleaf pines
12: The oldest age a visitor can enter the gardens for free without parachuting in past the gate


Places to Explore

The Longleaf Pine Ecosystem
The forest blooms with more than 165 species of plants, including longleaf pines, southern magnolias, and native wildflowers.

The Founders’ Fragrance and Texture Garden
Benches, a Japanese footbridge, and a small koi pond distinguish this garden, which was designed for the visually impaired.

The Millie McConnell Rhododendron Garden
Nineteenth-Century architectural artifacts line the brick paths. Hummingbirds and butterflies often buzz about the shrubs and annuals.

Tempting taste buds for more than 30 years, Godfather's Pizza crafts mouthwatering pies composed of 100% fresh mozzarella, an array of robust meats and veggies, and three varieties of baked crust. Like frisbees, Godfather's pizzas ($8.99–$15.99 for one topping; additional charges for two or more toppings) are ideally suited for enjoying indoors or at the park and are even more satisfying for teeth than they are for hands. Each delicious disk can be made with original, thin, or golden—extra warm and buttery—crust and comes smothered in the eater's choice of eclectic toppings, including beef, mushrooms, jalapeño peppers, and anchovies.

Picklefish OldShell’s chef draws on 16 years of experience to season and sizzle pizzas, po boys, and burgers. Nibbles such as buffalo and barbecue wings or spinach-and-artichoke dip pave the way for cheesy pies such as the Great White, which spreads garlic-based sauce, fresh basil, and feta onto a crispy crust engraved with Herman Melville’s initials. Televisions flicker as diners bite into italian-sausage-and-ham-laden slices of the Big Pig or the gooey goodness of a hand-patted four-cheese burger. Bell peppers and grilled onions tickle the spine of a philly cheesesteak as live music simultaneously tickles ears on weekends.
