I have been to the arboretum many times it's a wonderful/beautiful place to take out of town guests!! Easter egg hunt is also pretty special as are all the special exhibits. Definitely a place to visit. The outside music venues are also fun to attend.

The arboretum is great, but what takes it to the next level are its special exhibits. Often seasonal. My favorite I've seen so far is the Chihuily sculpture exhibit--strewn throughout the gardens. Autumn and Spring are always nice as well. Paid parking and admission.

If you like outside flowers, landscape beauty - this is the holy grail. It is well maintained - making seasonal changes to reflect the current holiday to take pics - folks were coming in wedding / graduation gowns etc. Around every corner - another special spot to take pics.

Worth the drive out here. So many things to see. We arrived in time to see the Christmas decorations, and the end of the Halloween decorations. The grounds are vast with all manner of gardens to see. Amenities dotted around the place, so you're never too far from a bottle of water, a snack, some shade, or restrooms. One of... More

This was our first time here. It was a family outing w a 4 yr. old. it was well worth the time and money. The grounds were so wonderful. Each area we entered was well kept and inviting. The waterfalls were a hit with us all, as were the fish ponds. We sought out as many statues as we could... More

This was my first visit at the Arboretum and I did their Holiday afternoon tea. It was amazing! The food was very good and the two teas offered were perfect for the season. All of the decorations were very festive and I loved it all. The actual gardens were breathtaking. I will definitely go back!

Every season the Arboretum changes the look of the property. Each season is beautiful. I love the arboretum so much I joined their organization so that I can visit any time I want.

I have enjoyed the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden many times in the spring for the unbelievable Dallas Blooms and in the fall for their pumpkin festival. But December is so beautiful. The Twelve Days of Christmas which I enjoyed as my friends and I strolled through the gardens. Then the addition of Santas, 500 of them, was extraordinary! Don't... More

I loved the Fall displays. Creative! Photos don't do it justice. Great for all ages. I plan to go back in the spring. The grounds were beautiful in October but I'm sure will be breathtaking in the spring.
