Mercer Arboretum & Botanic Gardens
[View Log Page]
Distance: 3.00 Miles
Duration: 2 hours
Took my two small sons, 5 & 3 at the time, as our first hike. The interpretive center got us excited and the trail was well established and easy to follow. We were pleasantly surprised, once we got deeper into the park, at how removed we felt. It did not feel like we were in the middle of one of the most traffic-congested areas of Houston! There is a meadow and a large pond with several varieties of turtles, trees to climb, lots to explore. We actually went back two weeks later and had my son's birthday party there!
