Top garden recommendations from locals

Botanical Garden
“Walk the Trails at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center Drive less than one mile west of Memorial Park to reach a stunning 155-acre nature sanctuary tucked right into the heart of the fourth largest city in America. Meander along the five miles of scenic trails under towering sycamore, oak, and pine trees, and then keep an eye out for turtles and fish as you wander through a shallow wetland. With free admission and much to see, you could spend a whole day here. ”

Garden
“Terrific place to sit and smell the roses. Check the operating hours as they are limited, plan to walk a few blocks to get there on nice weekends as the lot stays full, and be aware of closures for special occasions.”
