  • They are not taking COVID-19 seriously. Crowds are insane, even though they have time slots, and people are not wearing masks, even though they are required. I felt very uncomfortable. Additionally...  more »
  • I am amazed at how well the Arboretum is decked out for November. Beautiful. Surprisingly crowded but that’s not their fault. We definitely will visit it again in the future.  more »

  • The gardens are immaculate! I went here in July so it was understandably scorching, but the greenery and the flowers were full fledged. The gardens are maintained very well and there isn't an extreme amount of people crowding the exhibits. Lastly, I would like to thank the park attendants for treating the squirrels, birds, and rabbits alike in that the critters are all a little tubby, and even more friendly!
  • I absolutely love this place. I am positively thrilled to recommend this place. Tge gardens are lovely, the staff gracious, the upkeep superb. One of my favorite places in Dallas. August is wonderful! It is dollar month and makes the experience affordable for everyone.
