“nature is waiting for you!”
Located on the western edge of Memorial Park, the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and the opportunity to experience the natural world. This 155-acre non-profit urban nature sanctuary provides education about the natural environment to Houstonians of all ages. It plays a vital role in protecting native plants and animals in the heart of the city where development threatens their survival. Visitors can explore nature by walking on trails (totaling 5 miles) free of charge. The Discovery Room will be closed from Aug 2019to early 2020. The hours posted are for grounds and trails. Normally each summer children gain in-depth knowledge leading to life-long appreciation of the natural world through week long Discovery Classes. Thousands of school children visit the Arboretum on field trips designed for their age and grade level.
