We came to visit the garden for Dallas Tulip Festival 2017. All types and colors of different tulips are in peak blooming displays. They are so beautiful and fabulous. It is definitely a must-see while visiting Dallas in spring.

Lots of nice flowers and plants. Decent outing for family or couples, not so much for small children as there is a lot of walking.
