Our cousin took us to the Arboretum for a lovely spring visit. The grounds and art displays of cooper kinetic sculptures are beautiful. We spent hours walking around and it was magical. We even had a chance to sample edamame artisanal food. A wonderful experience.

Dallas has a true gem with this venue. The florals and trees and lawns will take your breathe away. And the variety of programming it offers makes it interesting to go back frequently because you will be amazed by new sights each time you go.
