Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
Off the shores of White Rock Lake lies the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. The 66 acres (267,093 square meters) of lush, perfectly manicured landscapes hold a treasure trove of trees, bushes, and flowers that are sure to make anyone green with envy. The DeGolyer House, a 1940s-style Spanish mansion, is also located on the grounds. Tours of the house and its sculpture garden are offered. The Jonsson Color Gardens, A Woman's Garden, and the Lay Ornamental Garden are all exquisite features of the picturesque grounds.
It was nice. It is best in the spring and summer I guess but there was a nutcracker theme in the de golyer house when we went. There were free tours and lots of gardens . Even a child-friendly section with information on the history of texas.
We're planning to go this first week of August..actually the 5th, my husband's birthday. Maybe then we invite 4 friends who have not been there ever since. I'm sure they would love it there...just seeing the colors and ambiance as much as I did. But one thing that keeps us from pushing through with the plan, is the $8.00 fee and still we have to pay for the &5.00 parking fee. It's affordable though for those who aren't struggling on their budget. However, my husband won't mind celebrating his birthday in what ever way we can just afford...a heartfelt prayer and love for each other for 19 years.
Beautifully laid out, you almost forget that you are right next to all the hubbub of Big D. A great place to spend an afternoon wondering the gardens with a good friend, or just taking time out of your busy day to sit by a fountain and reflect on the meaning of life, etc.
I love the whole thing, it was soo pretty, and the nature of it was soo breath taking. I would recommend this to anybody who loved nature, and loved loving at exotic flowers. The time and money was worth it. i would go do it again.
