This is a real gem for Dallas, Texas. Whether you visit the children's garden or the regular garden it is a must. Take out of town guests and you will not be disappointed. The landscapes are exquisite and the themes change regularly. A first class run exhibit. We have attended the music in the park themes and have really enjoyed... More

Taking my granddaughters to visit the Children's Garden was a particularly fun visit, although they were so entranced by everything we saw on the path from the main entrance to the Children's Garden that I wasn't sure we would even get there! Make your reservations for TIMED entries to the Children's Garden well prior to your visit if possible and... More

Beautifully maintained and well organized. A Dallas treasure for all ages. Save it for a sunny but not too hot day.

Visited on a lark after seeing $5 Presidents Day admission and $2 cherry pies advertised on website. Beautiful grounds, even in February. Nice spot for a picnic or even a leisurely walk. Didn't feel crowded even though the parking lot was quite full.

We became members a year ago since we enjoy the changing displays. This is also a go to place for taking our young grandchildren. We can take a picnic and they can run on the lawn and work off some of their energy. We love the children's garden it is interesting and educational while in the summer the water area... More

A lovely place to walk and picnic. I would just advise that you get your parking online prior to arrival so that you only pay $8 as opposed to $15 there. The tickets are pricey so make sure there is an event going on that you want to go to or the flowers are all in bloom.

Although we visited this place during Spring, which of course is not the best time to visit this place since half of the tree's didn't had any leaves. This place does not disappoints you at all. The garden is huge, the staff is very courteous and helpful. We also were able to purchase the entry ticket at only $5 per... More
