Named after Thelma and Charles Mercer, Humble’s Mercer Arboretum and Botanical Gardens entices visitors daily with free admission and 250 acres of land along Cypress Creek. Although 14.5 acres of the land originally belonged to the Mercers—who used it for their home and garden—the area has since been purchased by Harris County and expanded to include several well-maintained hike trails, a butterfly house, restroom facilities and picnic areas. The nationally-recognized arboretum and botanical garden boasts the largest collection of native and cultivated plants in the region. Among the many highlights are native Dogwood trees, vibrant pink camellias, rare camphor daisies and orchid trees. Pack a picnic and spend the afternoon spotting colorful Pine Warblers, Black-capped Chikadees and Cardinals as they flit overhead. Located in Harris County, Precinct 4

I've been to the gardens twice and those two times I've visited have always been awesome. I love exploring the gardens to find and learn about the various types of plants. I took my girlfriend out on a date to explore and take pictures of us, the plants, and the scenery. So guys or girls, if you're looking for a date that requires no money (with the exception of gas) or want to take pictures or if you're into plants, please by all means, visit Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens. You will have fun and will not be disappointed. It's free!!

Even in February and after south Texas had a deep freeze, there was still a lot of beauty at Mercer Botanical Gardens. I needed to waste a couple of hours in Humble and I was glad to do it here. I wandered the trails, snapped lots of pics and enjoyed a warm winter day in Texas. This is a free venue and I would love to revisit here (and explore the arboretum across the street) more later in the spring when everything is rejuvenated and blooming.

Wow, Houston. Way to go, keeping these gems on the down low. I love discovering new reasons to love my hometown. Mercer Arboretum is tucked away in a part of town I'd probably rarely travel to. You would never know it just looking off the highway, but this place is humongous! I was invited by a photography client to take her portraits there, and I was glad to have discovered this place. The Botanical Gardens (on the east side) are beautiful. Flowers were blooming in the middle of January. There are fountains, benches to sit on, and beautiful trees. Everything is labeled meticulously. It wasn't crowded, so it was easy to finish the portrait shoots with zero interruptions, which is rare! It's probably a different experience during high season and warmer weather, but even during winter the landscape was lovely. Great place for a walk, some meditation, and exploring. Houston can always use more nature settings!

Our destination last weekend was the kids park which is on the other side of Aldine Westfield from the Botanical gardens. The kids park is very well made and has the playground equipment sectioned off based on the ages of your children. (Little kids section for 1-5 and more challenging equipment for the older crowd. My kids have a lot of fun here. This part of the park allows pets, so when we want to took pooch along for the fun, we pick this park. There are lots of picnic tables and seating for parents and it's big enough you can play a (little) kids game of baseball. The trails and loops at Mercer are great for little legs and are set up in a way where you can choose the 10 minute loop, or keep going and take the 30 minutes loop. I know you can go further too, but we don't usually make it much further. A great place for some outdoor fun!

The gardens are named after Thelma and Charles Mercer, who purchased 14.5 acres (59,000 m2) in the late 1940s for their home and garden. They preserved native trees such as dogwoods, rusty blackhaw viburnum, and hawthorns, and introduced camellias and exotic tree species such as ginkgo, bauhinia, philadelphus, camphor, and tung oil. The property was purchased by Harris County in 1974, and has grown to 325 acres (1.32 km2).
