    Beautiful gardens, plenty to see and lots of room to spread out and read a book or have a picnic. Don't forget to take the kids to see the hundreds of pumpkins. I've never seen so many different kinds

    The garden is beautiful. If you want to secure a parking spot, make sure you get there early. You can also reserve a spot on their website, which is only $8 instead of $15.

    Absolutely beautiful, should visit. Well kept, seasonal displays. It is expensive & you must pay to park. Lot does get full when busy. Great place to practice photography. Try the afternoon tea.

    I love every season at this place - always something going on at the Arboretum. They allow outside food & drinks, so make a picnic of it. Check out details for Cool Thursdays or the children's area.

    Great spot for a stroll and some great photos. There is also a cool kids area on top of the overall space. Check their calendar for events and evening concerts.

    For a serene outdoor experience overlooking White Rock Lake, watch a night-time concert at the Dallas Arboretum. The Arboretum grounds span over 66 plush acres.

    Best to go in the morning. Feel free to bring you kids and lunch, and plan to stay for a few hours! If you go on the weekends you will probably get to see some wedding photos being taken.

    Off the shores of White Rock Lake lies the garden of a lifetime. The lush, perfectly manicured landscapes hold a treasure trove of trees, bushes & flowers that are sure to make anyone green with envy.

    Well worth the price especially when Spring has sprung. Also if you want to spend more time without the cost you can become a volunteer.

    Just opened Children's Garden is awesome! Does require an additional fee though. 40,000 pumpkins, glorious hues of fall and children watching as the parents snap pictures. What a treat!

    Get in touch with nature with a nice walk around the Dallas Arboretum. Walking is a great form of exercise, and spending time outside can lower your blood pressure and strengthen your immune system

    If you plan on walking around, do NOT wear heels. We came for a photo shoot and, of course, wanted to explore the garden after. My God I wish I had put my flats in the diaper bag.
