The Dallas Blooms Festival is beautiful. Hundreds of thousands of tulips blooming and the cherry blossoms just came out. Nice leisurely walk around acres of flowers, trees, ponds, waterfalls, and White Rock Lake. Huge children's area in the gardens. Several places for a snack or lunch. A wonderful Dallas attraction. Go see it!

While Dallas was under the weather with spring showers for several days, the Dallas Arboretum was just the ticket to lift one's spirits with spectacular color from the tulip display. Various sections had wide borders of different shades of pinks, purples, yellow & orange tulips. There are different displays of flowers blooming depending on the season, pumpkins in the fall...

Wow, wow, wow!!! This place is amazing. I have never seen so many gorgeous flowers. You can get your walk in and never notice it. You are so busy enjoying nature and all this attraction has to offer. There were six in our group and I am sure we took 600 pictures! The entire venue is outside so don't go... More

We visited the botanical gardens in the Fall, so we knew that the floral offerings might not be as abundant as in the Spring. We were pleased to discover enjoyable walkways, water effects and lovely spaces for photography. While we were there, several young ladies were having portraits done for their Quinceanera celebrations. We are planning another visit now in... More

We spent most of the day touring the gardens. There is an outdoor café and a nice gift shop. Although it was a little early for everything to be in bloom, there was still plenty to see.

Dallas... oh how I hate the weather but when it's just right outside the botanical gardens is really nice. The garden itself is very beautiful but its the area that your in that makes it really great. Nice view of the lake and the buildings they have there are very pretty. All in all if the weather permits it, you... More

It was our first visit to The Dallas Arboretum. We went to visit on March 16, 2015 during our daughter’s Spring Break vacation. The weather was perfect when we went. It was nice and sunny about 75 high of the day. We were there from 10am to 4:00 pm and we haven’t seen everything! It is so huge and well... More

This place was much larger than I expected; many different 'areas' of gardens. All of them were lovely in their distinct way. Went during the fall - pumpkin time - so that area was really cool. Fun & interesting kids' area.

My son, granddaughter, and I went to the Arboretum today. It was stunning, even on a cloudy day. The children's garden was much grander than I had expected. Dallas should be very proud of this jewel!! Ruth Cothes
