    You can't find many places in Dallas that beat the beauty of the Arboretum. It's so peaceful and restful.

    Took about 2 hours to walk it. Come after 1pm...field trip kids were everywhere. Everything was gorgeous. Loved all the waterfalls and water displays.

    The garden is beautiful. If you want to secure a parking spot, make sure you get there early. You can also reserve a spot on their website, which is only $8 instead of $15.

    I came here in the earliest spring, but with $15 fee, the garden is huge and full of flowers. Colorful and peaceful

    Go during special events when they have special displays, otherwise it's the same boring park.

    Absolutely beautiful, should visit. Well kept, seasonal displays. It is expensive & you must pay to park. Lot does get full when busy. Great place to practice photography. Try the afternoon tea.

    A wonderful venue for a private event. The staff is genial and professional. The In house caterer is wonderful to work with and the food is delicious.

    Beautiful gardens, plenty to see and lots of room to spread out and read a book or have a picnic. Don't forget to take the kids to see the hundreds of pumpkins. I've never seen so many different kinds

    Bring a cooler, a cup, a friend and your favorite beverage. You can be at the Arboretum for hours.

    If you plan on walking around, do NOT wear heels. We came for a photo shoot and, of course, wanted to explore the garden after. My God I wish I had put my flats in the diaper bag.

    Just opened Children's Garden is awesome! Does require an additional fee though. 40,000 pumpkins, glorious hues of fall and children watching as the parents snap pictures. What a treat!

    Witness nature in full bloom. You will see plants that you will have never known existed and in shapes you would have not known possible.

    For a serene outdoor experience overlooking White Rock Lake, watch a night-time concert at the Dallas Arboretum. The Arboretum grounds span over 66 plush acres.

    Best to go in the morning. Feel free to bring you kids and lunch, and plan to stay for a few hours! If you go on the weekends you will probably get to see some wedding photos being taken.

    Come to the Pumpkin Villiage during Autem in the Arboretum. Beautiful place to take pictures with the little ones.....or your significant other.

    Overpriced admission and parking (especially since we had to park in an adjacent grass lot), wilted and dry flowers, and the hordes of people made this visit less than pleasant. I've seen better.

    If you're not inside enjoying some great concerts this season you should definitely be here. Some of the most beautiful flowers and scenery to be seen.

    Get in touch with nature with a nice walk around the Dallas Arboretum. Walking is a great form of exercise, and spending time outside can lower your blood pressure and strengthen your immune system

    If you're thinking "why not Sunday Brunch at the Dallas Arboretum?" think again. Limited menu and it doesn't start until 11:00. I got here hungry at 10:15. And non members pay admission and parking.

    Weekends can get really crowded – especially in the spring during Dallas Blooms – so if possible plan a weekday outing. Powered by ParentsConnect.com

    go early when there are concerts at the park. I would even recommend parking and walking into the arboretum since parking is awful.
