The arboretum is a beautiful park located approx 1/2 hr from downtown dallas. We were visiting dallas without a car and took one bus from union station (right outside our hotel at the hyatt) and the bus dropped us off at the front door of the arboretum--very convenient. We had a romantic and yummy lunch at the restaurant with piano music playing in the background and a view of the lake. Plan on at least 2-3 hours for the visit.

Took my mommy group there. We love all the pumpkins and the opportunity to allow the kids to run in nature.

We went on a gorgeous and warm Sunday. It was PACKED. People everywhere, girls in gowns getting their pictures taken, families all over the place. It's a great place, but I'm going to check it out during the week when it will be hopefully a little less busy.

The Dallas arboretum is a beautiful place to visit, specially when you want to see the fall colors. All the trees and flowers are colorful. This place is great for all the family.

There is always a gorgeous display of seasonal flowers, most recently a knockout fall variety. The recent Chihully glass sculptulre display was outstanding; we visited several times. We especially enjoy the "experimental" garden, in which new varieties of flowers, shrubs, and herbs are grown.
