A Tasteful Place Named Gardens

A Tasteful Place is filled with features, nooks and discoverable moments made possible by our generous donors. See those features here.

  • Potager Display Gardens: Four individual quadrants comprise the ornamental kitchen garden, or “potager,” pronounced, pot·a·ger or ˈpätijə(r) as it is called by the French, which is a productive working garden that is also visually beautiful, drawing on European gardening principals and artful arrangement. The Potager Gardens are a signature element of the development with in-season vegetables, herbs and flowers, planted ornamentally and interspersed with flowers to attract pollinators and beneficial insects. Marilyn R. Corrigan Potager Garden donated in her honor by Catherine A. Corrigan and the Marilyn R. Corrigan Potager Garden.
  • The Charlotte and Donald Test Pavilion, a 3,600-square-foot building with 180 degree views of the garden, lagoon and walkways, features event space and teaching kitchen to showcase chefs who will demonstrate preparation of garden-to-table cuisine. It’s also a site for cooking classes, educational programs and special events.
  • The Barbara and Bob Bigham Scenic Overlook, a perfect location for weddings, wine tastings, seated dinners and picnics, overlooking downtown Dallas and White Rock Lake.
  • Ruthie Pack Tasting Plaza, a site of daily tastings featuring seasonal produce.
  • Central Stairway and Promenade, a beautiful stairway that descends from the entry plaza and Gisela Rodriguez Gazebo to welcome visitors to the garden, along with panoramic views of the new additions.
  • The Strolling Trail, a U-shaped paved ADA accessible walkway to take visitors circuitously to see the garden.
  • Three Sisters Lagoon Overlook, the trellis covered patio provides a shaded spot to view A Tasteful Place, the lagoon and meandering walkways and downtown Dallas; it’s also a site for intimate celebrations.
  • Margaret and Jay Simmons Lagoon, a signature feature of A Tasteful Place and more than an acre, it sits just below the main garden and provides a large, natural body of water. The center will feature a beautiful, lighted fountain that changes shape and pattern. The edges of the lagoon are surrounded by large boulders and lush lawns. A bridge crosses a cascading stream that pours into the lagoon. Meandering paths allow visitors to enjoy the ambience and beauty of this new garden.
  • Carol Miller Kelley Orchard and Orchard Patio, a variety of fruit-bearing trees suitable to the Texas climate surround a shaded patio.
  • Tory and Dick Agnich and Dodie Trescher Shaded Patio, on the southern end of the Pavilion, this adjoining patio provides seating for guests.
  • Ann Stuart Veranda at the Garden Pavilion, a covered front patio of the Garden Pavilion that looks directly over the four potager gardens.
  • Gary Goodwin Garden Gate provides a special entrance to A Tasteful Place for use during special events.
  • Tim Wallace Garden to Table Walkway, a wide center walkway from the Pavilion to the overlook, suitable for garden-to-table dinners.
  • P. Allen Smith Entrance Walkway
Ribbon Cutting at a Tasteful Place

Thanks to our Donors

This will be a collaborative effort with alliances with many groups around the city already in place, that will showcase their knowledge and expertise with our Arboretum guests.

The Arboretum has partnered with Garden Home lifestyle celebrity P. Allen Smith to design the programming for A Tasteful Place to include a full calendar of educational activities, tastings, horticultural demonstrations and public festivals. We are creating a one-of-a-kind garden of nature’s bounty and educational value for North Texans – surrounded by our beloved Arboretum tradition of rich programming, gracious hospitality and the finest in garden design.

Thanks to all our donors for your help and for a wonderful ribbon cutting ceremony on October 3!
