Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden

The Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden was designed to connect children with nature. Education is a central focus of our mission, which is why we are delighted to be able to teach life and Earth science to both school children and their teachers as well as families.

Highlights

  • Daily science labs
  • Exploration Center with Omni Globe
  • Incredible Edible Garden
  • Texas Native Wetlands
  • Energy Island
  • 17 indoor/outdoor galleries
  • 150 interactive science games
  • Water features throughout

The Dallas Arboretum’s Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden is a truly spectacular addition to this community—brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed. Kids of all ages will have an engaging and entertaining experience, all while learning more about the wonders of our planet.

– Boyd Matson, Host, National Geographic Weekend

I’m excited about the hands-on learning experience that the next generation of geologists and engineers will have in the Energy Learning Center. Challenging young minds is the way we will adapt to the future energy demands.

– Dr. Gerald Turner, President of Southern Methodist University
