I have visited the Dallas Arboretum many times nearly from its beginning. It has been transformed from two contiguous estates to a world class botanic garden, showcasing especially plantings that grow in the North Texas climate. It's one of the premier destinations for locals and visitors to the Dallas area. It's a photographer's dream.

We really enjoyed our day with Mother Nature. A beautiful facility. Superior maintance and manicuring. The music was lovely. We could see that it would be wonderful to visit here in all the seasons.

Any time you go it is always wonderful, they keep adding new stuff and flowers. You can eat there or bring your own. It is not expensive they have senior prices - only thing, you cannot bring your pets.
