“Garden of Eden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

I fell in love with this garden at first sight and I became a member right away. Especially now, in springtime it's full of blossoms, it's almost surreal. If I were living in Dallas when I was getting married, this would definitely be our wedding venue.

“Spectacular, awesome place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

Beautiful gardens and flowers. Fun place to take small children, as they have a small water fountain play area, "frontier type village", "Picasso play house", etc. There are nice picnic tables for lunch. We got in on a promotion "two for Tuesdays" sponsored by Capitol One Bank, 2 adult admissions for the price of one. Check the discount page on their internet site. Also got normal $10 parking fee for $5 printing a coupon off their website.
