Visiting a garden in February once doesn't expect many blooms. But we enjoyed the personalized layout and could envision the previous owner spending many hours enjoying her beautiful yard. Unfortunately many of the plants have aged past beauty, groundcovers have escaped where they ought not...More

Mynelle has a rich history and is so beautiful! Be aware that you are nearing a bad part of town, but don't let that dissuade you from making the trip. It's totally worth it - and it's safe. A great spot to take pictures, whether...More

What a great place to visit, particularly when the spring flowers are in bloom. We are fortunate to have this treasure preserved in our city.

I live in a suburb outside of Jackson and would NOT visit Mynelle Gardens. This place is located in a very bad part of Jackson. You better be well armed!
