Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
Spread across 66 acres on the shores of White Rock Lake, Dallas Arboretum's 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 being named one of "15 Breathtaking Botanical Gardens" by Architectural Digest and being listed as #1 as Top Attraction in Dallas on TripAdvisor. The newly renovated Lay Family Garden includes a cascading waterfall with limestone benches. Landscaping work is showcased as well: A Woman's Garden has won national acclaim for its garden rooms, reflecting pool, and floral displays.
