Beautiful in fall

Lots of gorgeous flowers and wooded trails to walk. Small gift shop too. Once a year they have a native plant sale that is well worth going to.

I love visiting Mercer Arboretum and Gardens. The gardens are lush and filled with native Texas plants. I attended the spring plant sale and bought many plants for my garden.

I love coming to take my walks here. Everywhere you look, you see really nice flowers or plants. The water fountains they have, are really nice to sit around.
