Coming To The Arboretum Is As Simple As 1 – 2 – 3

  1. We are located at 8525 Garland Road, Dallas 75218.
  2. If it is a busy day during a festival, we will have shuttle buses running from the parking lot at Gaston/Garland (YMCA parking lot). Please go there directly. There are many buses that leave quickly and drop you at our front entry. It is monitored by our security and fast, free and easy.
  3. To maintain the integrity of the garden, animals, frisbees, balloons, kites and boom boxes are not permitted.

We are seven miles east and two right turns from Mockingbird and N Central Expy. The turns are on Buckner and Garland. You can also head east from NorthPark Center on Northwest Hwy, turn right on Buckner, and right on Garland.

If coming from I-635, Garland Road, a perfect name for us, is noted on signage. Head south past Casa View and Casa Linda Shopping Centers, heading to 8525 Garland.

If coming from downtown or from the east on I-30, we are incredibly close. Two exits away from those for the Fair are the ones for East Grand (which becomes Garland going east) or Winslow, which dead ends into East Grand/Garland. Just go North, past the Gaston/Garland intersection, or stop there if buses are running for the quick, free ride; and then proceed to the Arboretum on the opposite side of the lake.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the most beautiful gardens in the world, The Dallas Arboretum.
