“Great Experience”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

My wife took me here for my birthday to experience Chihuly Nights...can you simply say breathtaking!!! I haven't been to the Arboretum since was was in HS and I'm not really into plants. I enjoy their beauty but botany isn't really my thing. However, the combination of sculpture and botany makes a beautiful song! We stayed here for almost 2 hours just enjoying every inch of the grounds. So much to see and all of it was peaceful. I want to plan a trip back because the views of White Rock Lake were phenomenal. This place brought me so much peace and joy! Very serene.

“Chihully at night”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I am biased about this place, I was married here and it was an amazing spring day. My Husband and I recently went to see the chilhully exhibit here at night , which was spectacular. I have had several friends and relative get engaged here after our wedding , a really beautiful place. Dont miss Dallas Blooms in the spring with the Tulips, a must see.

I visited with a friend that had a season pass and now I want a season pass. This place is so romantic, but it's difficult to explore all in one day!
