We visit this place more due to the butterfly collection, but here is yet another nice peaceful place to stroll.

This place if perfect for a date. Whether it's the first date, or your 100th, its always nice to get over to the arboretum each season to see what they have designed. Overall, the experience is worth the entry fee, for you can relax here all day long.

Currently, there is some construction going on, but I can't wait to see the new are of the park opened up to White Rock Lake.

And the seasonal exhibits are always fun to view! With the exception of maybe Dec/January there is always something in bloom.

The park is beautiful. There is no doubt about it. We especially love cool Thursdays for the concerts. But I will say the park is becoming too commercialized and crowded.

Great Lake side location in East Dallas. Wonderful year round exhibits of plants and flowers. The fall pumpkin patch, the spring blooms, the Christmas nativities. Something for everyone all year round.
