Visited brother in Humble. While we waited for him to come home from work I searched near me things to do & saw this was close. Is split into 2 sections- one on each side of the road. I think we visited the smaller side, about 5 acres or so yet my 7 year old daughter loved it (as well... More

I have visited other Arboretums. This one may not offer bike rentals - maybe the only negative I can think of, but it is a hiker's paradise. Additionally, there is no entrance fee, and the only potential cost is buying a map ($3), though you would be fine walking around without one.

This Arboretum is maintained as a park by Harris County precinct 4. I have been going to this place for a number of years now. Just as landscape changes by the months and seasons so does the Arboretum. If you can go on a week day the place is less busy. I would recommend this place to anyone that loves... More

The botanic garden is a joy to visit, many botanical collections and it is beautifully maintained, a large volunteer base has very wonderful plant sales, the new director has big plans for expansion and plant lovers will be thrilled by the beauty, many wedding pictures taken here.

Can't beat this - a very nicely maintained FREE park great for strolling, sightseeing, learning, and more. When I was there, a ton of people were taking glamour shots, professional family photos, etc. So clearly I'm not the only one to appreciate all the beauty here! I was there in the off-season so I imagine it looks even better in... More

This was a very nice place to take a stroll and take in some beautiful gardens both formal and informal. We spent 1½ hours here and only saw the gardens on the east side of the road. There is another section on the west side of the road that we unfortunately didn’t see. We went to the visitor’s center and... More

Such a great refuge in Harris County Precinct 4-- well-maintained trails, beautiful trees & flowers, great birds, and even flushing conveniences by the Post Oak Pavilion! Free, easy to get to, and soooo perfect for a Saturday morning walk in October!

Mercer Arboretum is a lovely, magical journey into a nature-filled walk! The Mercer Arboretum is divided into two sections, with one part on one side of the highway and the other, dog-friendly side, on the other side of the highway. Oh and there's a library on the grounds as well! The dog-friendly section has so many trails and each trail... More
