The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden features acres of gardens, from the ornamental to the sunken and color gardens. Theres the interactive pioneer garden and Toad Corners water spout for kids, as well as photo ops galore.

This green spot in Dallas' concrete jungle first opened its gates in 1984. Since then, the park has grown—not just in size, but in the depth and breadth of species that call the arboretum home.

Today, the garden boasts a plethora of family activities, like evening concerts, picnics, garden exploration and Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden, an 8-acre, $62 million children's garden with 17 indoor and outdoor learning galleries and 150-plus interactive exhibits.




This venue can accommodate children with special needs.

Wheelchairs and trams are provided on the grounds (on a first-come basis) for those with walking limitations. Trams provide access to central garden areas and the DeGolyer Home. Tram drivers give histories of both houses and gardens as they pass along on their route through the gardens from the DeGolyer House to the Camp House. Priority given to the mobility impaired. Trams are not available for reservations or renting.
