Well worth a few hours. The Dale Chihuly glass sculpture exhibit was outstanding.

The Arboretum is a true gem. They have an amazing collection of gorgeous plants. our favorite time to go is during Dallas Blooms in the Spring when all of the tulips and azaleas are blooming. When it gets hot, the shaded area of tropical plants is refreshing.

This is a fun place to take the family. The outdoor concerts are lots of fun. They work to have the best flowers for the seasons. Love to take out of town guests here.

The gardens are beautiful, and the Chihuly sculptures are spectacular! We enjoyed the music but wish we had gone when the weather was cooler. We happened to be in Dallas during the Trade Mart, so we decided to take advantage of our time there to see this exhibit. This is a great value for the money, and I highly recommend it if you wait until cooler months to go.

The flowers are pretty amazing. We took some Easter family photos out there. Plenty of great photo opportunities.
