Just like plants are important to us, we understand that pets are an important part of many residents’ lives. Visitors are allowed to walk their dogs on the arboretum trails on the west side of Aldine Westfield. However, in Mercer's botanic gardens on the east side of Aldine Westfield, pets are only allowed for pet portraits; owners must complete a Pet Portrait Form (PDF) and submit it to Mercer two weeks prior to the portrait sitting. Please send forms through mail, fax, or in person to:
Mercer Botanic Gardens
22306 Aldine Westfield Road
Humble, TX 77338
Pets must be on a 6-foot leash at all times and must be cleaned up after. Seeing-eye and hearing-assistance dogs are allowed throughout both the arboretum and botanic gardens.
Many of the plant collections in the botanic gardens are priceless. For their protection and your safety, please abide by the rules and regulations while visiting Mercer Arboretum & Botanic Gardens.
