Love this place. It is just so beautifully maintained, so pretty, and such lush foliage any time if year. TAKE the kids. OR just go for a stroll. Either way it is a gem in the Dallas landscape!

So festive at Christmas. Love all the gazebos depicting the Twelve Days of Christmas. The arboretum is always a great place to visit while in Dallas. It was first cold day, so it was actually perfect! Will definitely visit at night next year.

If you enjoy the urban outdoors including plants, fountains, trees, and a historical venture, I recommend you stop by! My favorite part was checking out DeGolyer House. It's a step back into time; a very cool glimpse into the past.

This was an unexpected trip to these gardens on our visit to Dallas - one of the most impressive gardens anywhere. Don't miss it.

What Dallas lacks in a major city park, it make for (in some ways) with a very beautiful arboretum. On the east side of the city overlooking White Rock Lake, this green space is immaculately maintained and a great place for families to get outside....More

Even though it's "off season" for flowers, the arboretum was outstanding. Amazing 12 Days of Christmas area and bazaar.
