The Arboretum is gorgeous all year long. New flowers are planted each season. Themes are changed. For example, for Fall there are hundreds of thousands of pumpkins of different varieties lining the walk ways. Storybook theme houses are made of pumpkins. This is a very family friendly site. You are allowed to bring in food and have a picnic in certain areas or buy from their more upscale dining room or from the sandwich and smoothie stand. In the summertime and when there is a school break, it is full of children, not only in the special Childrens Garden but throughout the site. Make sure to tour the DeGolyer home, think those free tours are scheduled every 30 minutes. If mobikity impaired, they will lend you a wheelchair or use the tram that doesn't cover all the garden but lets you get a small idea and caan drop you off at DeGolyer. You may see brides, young girls for their Quincinera (15th coming out), or debutantes all dressed uo getting their photos taken here. You can stay a long time or just an hour, but make sure this is on your list of things to do. Parking is about $10 and admission is $15 adults, $10 for kids, plus an addition $3 if you want to see the special, new Children's Garden (it has activities and things to do, so not just a walking garden). You can use your own stroller or bring in a wagon for kids that don't use a stoller but may get tired later.
