The White Rock Lake and its surroundings, is not something you’d want to miss! Away from the urban set-up of Dallas, lies a 70 acre plot of land that has some of the most exquisite collection of vegetation you’ll ever see. Huge gardens, old and historic residences and the lake will all be more than enough to let you forget that you live in a world different than the one perceived at the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens. The country’s largest collection of azaleas can be seen blossoming during the spring at The Jonsson Color Garden whereas in the fall, more than 150,000 flowers are up for display!

I love the Dallas Arboretum! One of those places I will dearly miss if we ever move away. Fall is one of the best times to come! Pumpkins EVERYWHERE. Think pumpkin patch, then multiply that by ten! Great for the kids and for pics! The Family Adventure Membership is well worth the price if you plan on coming more than 3 times/year and we are here usually once a month AT LEAST as a family but my wife brings the kids here multiple times a week especially during the summer to cool off in the kids water area/splash pad. Plus, with the membership you can bring up to six people in with you so it’s great for when family and friends are visiting or for play dates for the kids. Love it!!
I absolutely loved all the plant life there was to offer. The water features were great too. Very beautiful. Would recommend for a first date or maybe second. Probably about 4K steps to go around the entire pathway. On the other side, $15 to walk around a huge park...are we covering the water bill or lack of attendance? Should prob be more around a $8-$10 range. They have a small cafe at the entrance where it’s $8.50 for a bagel and cream cheese, which seems steep when you’re paying an admission to the park. It would probably get a little more business if it was located outside of the gate and you got half off the arboretum price if you buy something there.
This place was AWESOME! One of the few botanical gardens I've been to that is still actively being developed rather than just being maintained as it has been since the 1800s. This park was actually only developed in the 1970s. It's very clean, modern, and they have a surprising amount of blooming colorful flowers for September. Admission is reasonable, and if you are a member of a reciprocal park pass it is likely to be free.
I'm surprised this place isn't on more lists of must-do activities for Dallas. We visited Dallas for just over a week and this was by far our favorite! We only went because it was the last place on our city pass. We definitely did not allow enough time to see the whole Arboretum. We were only able to do the kids section and we basically ran through it (it took almost 3 hours with our toddler and preschooler) and we had an absolutely fantastic time. It's hard to describe, but for an adult, it was beautiful and for our children it was fun and magical (they adored the hedge maze)
Great spot to go for a walk to enjoy some beautiful plant life. You will be surprised by the aesthetics and the great visuals created from such arrangements. Hours aren't the most convenient but if you can make it then I would recommend going there with family or even a date.
