We didn't really know what to expect, but we loved it. The Chihuly glass is amazing, and the colours look great in among the garden. Its quite expensive to visit in comparison to other Dallas attractions (double the price of the zoo) but it really was worth seeing. Lots of helpful guides around to give more information about the pieces. The Texan village was fun (even for adults!) and it was great to wander around with a frozen lemonade and admire the gardens. My favourites were around the walls of water, we have some great photos.

Each season provides creative and imaginative displays. Explosions of color. Bring your camera - you'll want memories of being in the midst of the beauty. Wear comfortable shoes - lots of walking. Excellent view of adjacent White Rock Lake and downtown Dallas in the distance.

The place is beautiful but it was too freaking hot to be strolling around leisurely. I loved the butterfly exhibit though. I'd say in Spring and in the Fall we may return and check it out again. Because my kids said they were too hot, so we left after 30 minutes. Yeah I'm blaming the kids.
