Our Mission

The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens was created to preserve history and nature. Though our gardens are comparatively young, we are leading the field in pursuit of our mission, which has four parts. We are a world-class display garden, committed to building a maintaining a public venue that:

  • Promotes the art, enjoyment and knowledge of horticulture;
  • Provides opportunities for education and research, to give back to the field;
  • Maintains and develops the Arboretum as an essential resource in Dallas; and
  • Prioritizes good management and fiscal responsibility.

We absolutely loved the whole experience, from strolling through the gardens with the beautiful lake views to admiring the skill and craftsmanship.
