lovely gardens filled with flowers, azaleas and photographers creating portraits of debs, engaged couples and newlyweds. Almost as much fun to watch them as it was to peruse the gardens. Loved the giant peacock topiaries!

This too is a must see in Dallas. Gardens are breathtakingly beautiful. Kept up to perfection. Also has a fabulous children's garden. When we visited the azaleas were in full bloom and absolutely amazing show of color.

A friend treated me to an afternoon at the Arboretum and the champagne tea. It was a lovely spring day to enjoy the flowers and trees in this city garden. Each turn on the walking path provides another vista. The colors chosen for each area bring an impressionist painting to life. There are benches on which to sit and chat... More

Even for little kids (mine are 4 and 2) there are so many hands on and interesting things to see and do at the new children's garden. There are several volunteers walking around helping to explain all the different locations. On a weekday, best thing to do is to try to get to locations in between school groups.

When my family first arrived, we thought the admission price was a little spendy. It turned out to be worth it. There were acres and acres of perfectly manicured gardens, trees, and flowers. We arrived at about 10AM on a weekday and did not have any trouble finding parking. We spent about 4 hours walking through the gardens, taking pictures,... More

Botanical Gardens are very colorful and rich. The architecture is modern and very welcoming. There are events almost every weekend and some week nights.

Great place for a family pouring for all ages. The children's garden is amazing, and there is something new for every season. I have enjoyed the arboretum throughout my life in Dallas.

...Gardens are always well maintained and lovely. This is a nice spot to visit on a warm spring day when things are back in bloom. Located next to White Rock Lake, which is a local jogging and relaxation spot in east Dallas. Problem with Arboretum is parking, you are pretty much forced to use the lot for $10. There is... More
