Mercer Arboretum & Botanic Gardens
Plants from around the world can be enjoyed in this park without having to leave the country. On 200 acres of beautiful land, you will find plants, an arboretum, nature trails and excellent picnic grounds. Kids will love the animal sanctuary, koi fishpond and the butterfly collection. Regardless of your favorite aspect, peace and serenity exists in abundance and does wonders for the soul. This is a wonderful way to spend a day. This place opens at 8am from Monday to Saturday. And Sunday this place is open at 10am.
This place is magical. Since my children were small our family has visited at least once a year, usually in the spring. What a great place for family gatherings. Every season has something different to offer. The Azalea Hillside is breathtaking, the Bamboo forest so quiet and serene, children and adults alike take delight in the herb garden, indulging all their senses. The ponds with koi are so relaxing to just sit and watch. There are so many quiet nooks to sit and soak in the landscaping. I have taken many friends there over the years and shared my love of this happy place. Even those people who "just know" they won't like come away with a new perspective. The admission is free for all and makes a great getaway for a family on a budget. The paths are wheelchair friendly also. Definitely a must see!
This is a Houston-area treasure little known except by locals. It's in a beautiful setting right in the middle of suburban sprawl. Huge formal gardens are beautiful year-round. Visitors center and plant signage are helpful and make for a very educational, enjoyable experience. Outside the formal gardens are equally attractive, extensive nature trails. Even in the considerable heat of a Houston summer, a walk in the cool shade of the arboretum is pleasant. There's a nice library that shares the arboretum parking lot. And, it's all free!
