Summer at the Arboretum can surprise our guests, because so much of our gardens remain lush and full, often reaching the height of beauty during this warm season. We also have a host of beautiful water and misting features that combine a cooling experience with effects that make the garden even more visually stunning. Whether you want to get outside with the family for a picnic, enjoy an amazing concert set against sunset over White Rock Lake, or take in the beauty of ZimSculpt, our Zimbabwean stone sculpture exhibit, you'll find a wonderful way to spend the day at the Arboretum during the summer.
