What a charming experience we had touring the Mercer Arboretum and Gardens. In early spring the blossoms are popping with color. Plants and trees are well identified, including native and endangered species. The trails are delightful and gentle for walkers of all abilities. Water features are beautiful. Maybe you will be lucky enough to meet the families of turtles that grace logs in the ponds! This attraction is free, as well as the larger park to the east which has more extensive trails, picnic benches and playground equipment for children.
