    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

    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.

    August is $1 admission and pay for parking online to get it half off ;) $1 hotdogs, drinks and smoothies at the cafe by the entrance. Come take family photos, plan your garden and relax in nature!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.
