“Spend an hour or two here to escape the noise and traffic of the city, walk nature trails, admire sculpture, and recline in soft, manicured grass.” - Fodor's Travel

The 66-acre Dallas Arboretum is one of the world’s premier gardens, and certainly one of the most colorful. Local residents have deemed this urban oasis to be the crowning jewel of Dallas. As one of the city’s top attractions, the Arboretum garners repeat visits from members, local visitors and out-of-town guests. Many praise the Garden for its beautiful vistas, colorful display gardens, and groves of pecan trees, magnolias, crape myrtles, cherry trees and azaleas.
