Great place for a stroll - I didn't think there was too much to see there, but it's still worth a visit if only for a walk around.

Best spot in dallas by far for nature lovers. Has a brand new childrens center with endless activities and learning games for all ages (including adults) bring your camera and spend the whole day exploring the entire place.

Fall was a perfect time to visit the weather is comfortable and the flower were all in bloom. The Arboretum is large enough that even when busy you don't feel the crowd.

If you are interested in a great back drop for some family photos or just want to shot colorful flowers the Arboretum and Garden have a lot to offer.

The Halloween displays were well done. The abundance of pumpkins and the displays were cleaver. Lots of nice options within the Garden to stop for a drink or meal.

We spend a lovely relaxing day here in January. It is huge and so we did not see it all. Great new children's area and beautiful walks and views, a little oasis just outside the busy city. We would recommend a visit there.

Spend a relaxing day at the Dallas Arboretum. Great site for picnics, photography, or just getting away from the usual Dallas sites.
