I love the Arboretum. It is beautiful and constantly changes with the seasons. It is well cared for and constantly changing with the seasons. The kids area is outstanding. Children can spend hours there learning while playing. One of Dallas’s best days out.

Wonderful place to take young children. Very large facility with opportunities to romp in water features. Some of the exhibits needed repair.

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.
