Early June saw the opening of a delightful Children’s Garden at Mercer Botanic Gardens. The garden is the first such children’s entry for Mercer. Special events and programs for the Children’s garden are on tap. Late August, saw the long-awaited opening of Mercer’s Tropical Garden. Set aside a lovely tropical backdrop, this garden is an oasis of tropical botanicals set amid a quiet reflective spot to relax and enjoy the sounds and sights of Mongo, our tropical mascot! Both gardens are a true delight, so plan a visit soon – you will not be disappointed!
