A treasured area of the Dallas Arboretum, Nancy’s Garden is blanketed by soft pink crape myrtles and azaleas, and is filled with seasonal pastel color annually.
A Burst of Colors
Summer brings Nancy’s Garden to life with bursts of color from the azaleas. This garden is also beautiful for a quiet moment in the warm north Texas fall.
Located within the DeGolyer Gardens, this space was originally Mrs. Nell DeGolyer’s personal garden. In 1986, the garden was renovated and dedicated to the children of Nancy Dillard Lyon. The Bill Dillard Family renovated the plantings and lighting of this peaceful area, which now includes child-sized benches as well as the sculpture Thank Heaven for Little Girls by Gary Price.
- Popular spot for weddings
- Ideal place to relax on an afternoon in the shade
- Azaleas make for an amazing photo backdrop
Nancy’s Garden is situated next to the DeGolyer house and its restaurant.
