The staff were friendly..explaining how they coped with the recent heavy rains. the scenic pond gave view of turtles perched for sunning and rabbits in the meadow eating breakfast. The gift... More

I like discovering new and interesting places and I am always happy when I discover these new places right in my own back yard, so to speak. This is what happened when I learned about Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens in nearby Humble, located very close to Houston’s IAH airport. I had just dropped the wife off for a flight... More

I used to take my kids here when they were young, a cousins in from out of town. Paths are well defined for an easy kid run around. Also, brought a photographer for a great family photo shoot - lots of flowers and nature spots!

I walked along trails on 2015.Jun.03, I think middle of spring is a good time to visit this place when temperatures are in high sixties and low seventies. I suggest to wear long sleeve and pants, also using repellents. In this way insect bites are not distraction during your walk along the trails, specially if you intend to do lots... More

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.
