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.

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.

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.

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!
