One of the best things about living in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is the weather, which makes it possible to grow an amazing number of flowers, some which will bloom all year long. One of the best places to see the beauty of the horticulture of our area is the Dallas Arboretum, located at 8525 Garland Road, on the shores of White Rock Lake.
More than a million visitors walk through the gates of the Dallas Arboretum each year to enjoy quiet strolls through the themed gardens and to participate in educational events and activities that celebrate the art and science of southwest horticulture.
The Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden, one of the best family-friendly activities in Dallas, was designed with kids, their teachers, and families in mind. It gives the Garden's visitors the opportunity to experience life and earth science firsthand with over 150 activities focusing on nature.
