Great collection of plantation and explanation of some of the history of Dallas. The place is fairly open, try to avoid visiting in the afternoon of hot summer days

We visited the Arboretum in February and the late February and the tulips were spectacular. They were everywhere! The layout of the gardens is really nice --- good for at least two to three hours of leisurely strolling and enjoying. Lots of pathways, lakes, fountains...More

It was hot late afternoon, but there's plenty of shade and places to sit and rest. I've gone many times over the years at various times of the year and it's always extremely well-maintained. Plants and flowers are switched out to correspond to the season....More

The only recommended parking for the Arboretum is onsite or in the parking garage. We offer pre-paid online parking for $8. Many folks use Uber from their hotel or homes.
