HOUSTON – Time to add another safe, and fun local outdoor activity to your to-do list!
We’re talking about the brand-new Houston Botanic Garden, located off I-45 just across from Hobby Airport.
It’s a 132-acre plant museum with hiking trails, water features, and a family discovery center, and it opens this Friday.
The garden will launch with a series of opening season weekends with special educational opportunities to showcase Houston’s cultural richness and biodiversity by highlighting regions of the world from which the garden has drawn its global plant palette. Here are some of the weekends to look forward to:
Sept. 18, 19, and 20 – Celebrating Latin America
Oct. 2, 3, and 4 – Celebrating Asia
Oct. 16, 17, and 18 – Celebrating Africa
Oct. 30, 31, and November 1 – Celebrating The Mediterranean
Visitors are encouraged to buy tickets online at Houston Botanic Garden.
