Got to visit for free, it would be pricey otherwise. $15 parking. Bus stop right outside looks like the deal. We loved it and will be back. Family yearly membership is the best deal. Volunteers are very friendly and helpful. Beautiful waterfalls, gardens, buildings.

What a great place to visit while visiting this bustling city . . . you would never know you are in the city (unless you hear a siren) while strolling through and enjoying the serenity of this arboretum.

This place was well kept and even thought it was extremely hot it was still enjoyable! It was large enough for us to get lost haha! We had to ask directions for the exit but the staff was great!

Always a pleasurable trip. The peace and beauty at the arboretum is always worth the trip. You can explore the gardens, or just like in the grass and soak in the tranquility.

The Arboretum is spectacular for each season. In the Spring the flowers are breath-taking, and in the fall the pumpkin festival is delightful. Christmas displays throughout the park are impressive.. I could go on and on. In the summer they have Thursday night concerts in...More

Not at the Arboretum, but at Fair Park, about four miles southeast. There are several fireworks displays visible from White Rock Lake Park, but they are several miles away.
