Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens

The Dallas Arboretum is one of Texas's most attractive sites. With an aesthetic display of natural wonders, choose from 14 gardens that encompass 66-acres of pure beauty. Positioned on picturesque White Rock Lake, the gardens give way to an Eden of trees, plants, ornamental shrubs, and different flowers throughout the seasons. There is more than what meets the name, though. The Arboretum is its own menagerie of art displays, concerts, and festivals all in the spectacular natural ambiance. Treat yourself to dining in one of the three restaurants, choosing from a view of downtown Dallas from the Lula Mae Slaughter Dining Terrace, the historic DeGolyer House, or the Restaurant DeGolyer.
