Higher Elevation

One of the Houston's newest Gardens, the McGovern Centennial Gardens, is a true gem. On 15 acres, landscape architect Doug Hoerr combined a rose garden, an arid garden, a family educational garden, a meandering path through woodlands, and a 30 ft land sculpture that allows visitors to have a 360 view of the garden.  Each individual space is unique encouraging the visitor to explore every hidden corner.   When the Garden's first opened a few months ago, I was sure it was still a secret but over the last few weeks the gardens have been full of visitors of all ages. So put on your favorite wide brimmed hat, bring your camera or a book, and enjoy a stroll through the gardens! Below are photos of a few of the points of interest from the McGovern Centennial Gardens.

  1. As a nature lover, I would love to visit a place like this. I wish there were more places like these in my city. With proper management, gardens like these could really attract people's attention.
