“Beautiful site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

When you enter the garden, there is an awesome sense of peace and tranquility. The water, the plants - all so wonderful. It was a very nice place to visit, serene in the midst of a busy city with transit rolling by. Beautiful.

“A Walk to Thanksgiving”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Very nice but not a lot to do. It was also just a blasted hot day in Dallas. Not the best day to choose to go on a walking tour.

“A peaceful oasis in a busy city...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This place is located in the heart of Dallas, easy to access. There is no parking, so you'll have to park in the street using parking meters (about $1). The admision is free. It's very peaceful and quite once you are inside the structure. Inside you are allowed to sit and pray ( in your own religion) because it's not designed for any religion in particular. On the bottom there is a little museum. Very nice!!

“Fascinating Concept”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

If you like art and architecture, you will like the thanks giving square. The conceptual design of the whole square including the chapel, garden, water fall, the bells and the exhibit hall is fascinating. I must say though the city authorities or whoever is responsible for the facilities must spend some money to renovate and maintain this artistic architectural treasure.

“Very humbling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

The Thanks Giving Square had a peaceful feeling and really makes you remember the reason why we are here and to care and help others in life. Very pretty art work and such a humble place to go. This is a good place to take children to help them learn about Thanksgiving and the true meaning. This place can really bring people back to reality.
