Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens
Spread across 66 acres, Dallas Arboretum's 14 themed gardens showcase the broad biodiversity of Texas' unique climate. The gardens' lush plantings and eye-catching vistas have earned the arboretum numerous accolades, including a spot on Travel Channel's list of "Best Botanical Gardens in the US." The arboretum's collection sprouts annual blooms and old growth, including the century-old Japanese maple accenting the Nancy Rutchik Red Maple Rill. Landscaping work is showcased as well: A Woman's Garden has won national acclaim for its formal terraces, reflecting pools, and flowerbeds.
Amid the greenery, workshop series and concerts draw in more than just botanists. Events such as rock music, wine tastings, and photography classes provide a festive contrast to the peaceful backdrop of towering trees and nearby White Rock Lake.
