The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is one of the most beautiful and top display gardens in North America. With 66 acres on the shores of White Rock Lake, this nationally recognized garden has changeable displays four times a year, providing breathtaking color for visitors all year long. From Dallas Blooms in the spring featuring 500,000 spring-blooming bulbs, to Autumn at the Arboretum with the nationally acclaimed Pumpkin Village, and Holiday at the Arboretum featuring dramatic 25-foot-tall glass gazebo displays accompanied by 500,000 lights based on the beloved carol, visitors will want to return often to see what’s new and newly planted in the garden.
Over the course of the year, this urban oasis, just minutes from downtown Dallas, attracts roughly a million visitors to its finely manicured grounds. Whether visitors come for a weekly respite or from locations around the country or world, they will find the garden areas listed below resplendent with seasonal plantings. The Arboretum is also a popular bridal photography spot and wedding destination with close to 300 weddings held in the gardens and facilities each year. In addition, people book the garden for hundreds of private and corporate events.
