Upcoming Events and Activities
Autumn at the Arboretum
The 16th annual Autumn at the Arboretum, presented by Reliant, is upon us and we are excited to once again share 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash, hailing from the pumpkin capital of Texas, Floydada, throughout the garden. This year, the space is transformed into Bugtopia! Our signature display will come alive with larger-than-life insect topiaries, fascinatingly bugged-out pumpkin houses, and, of course, a maze for younger visitors.
Tour des Fleurs
Hosted by the Dallas Arboretum, the Tour des Fleurs starts and finishes on the Lakeside Trail of White Rock Lake directly in front of the Dallas Arboretum. From there, participants run along the shores of White Rock Lake as well as in & among the beautiful historic Dallas neighborhoods surrounding the lake.
