Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens reviews
I hope to return in spring and summer. Lots of space and in honor of public health, only allow for a certain amount of visitors at a time. more »
The place itself is beautiful, just don’t waste your money on parking like I did. It’s not mandatory and essentially a way for them to get more money from you as stated by their customer service... more »
The gardens are immaculate! I went here in July so it was understandably scorching, but the greenery and the flowers were full fledged. The gardens are maintained very well and there isn't an extreme amount of people crowding the exhibits. Lastly, I would like to thank the park attendants for treating the squirrels, birds, and rabbits alike in that the critters are all a little tubby, and even more friendly!
I absolutely love this place. I am positively thrilled to recommend this place. Tge gardens are lovely, the staff gracious, the upkeep superb. One of my favorite places in Dallas. August is wonderful! It is dollar month and makes the experience affordable for everyone.
