The arboretum is a Dallas mainstay and a guaranteed nice time. While there are certainly more elaborate arboretums in North America, the Dallas Arboretum manages to do quite well. This a great place to take kids, especially on the weekends. There are also several nice corners to just read or write in peace (maybe best on the weekdays). My biggest... More

An amazing place, would recommend to anyone! I think it is a must see for everyone who enjoys nature. It is very well maintained and everyone working there that I encountered was kind and helpful. I will definitely return and bring my family.

Allow yourself enough time to lolly gag around and take your time. Make sure you take your money and visit the gift shop at the end.

The arboretum is always lovely even in January when little is blooming. Our 3 year old guest was delighted with the frog fountain.

Took out of towners to the fall festival to show them a side of Dallas most don't know exists. Honestly, the Arboretum is a gem that should be on everyone's must visit list when coming to town. I mean, how many times can you run people by Dealy Plaza anyway? Yes, it's a little bit of a drive but well... More

My first time there it was winter time so not the best for a botanic garden but the 12 Christmas stations made it more interesting. Spring is the time I suggest visiting, and fall is a great time too with lots of colors and and fall celebrations themes
