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

The Dallas Arboretum is gorgeous! There is a wide variety of plants and trees, and the landscaping work is exceptional. We even saw two chickens while we were there. Everything was beautiful, and it definitely did not disappoint.

The Arboretum never disappoints. So much beauty and it's just a relaxing place to be. The Thursday concerts are a great perk. Lots of neat stuff for kids too.
