Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden
Perhaps the most beautiful and extensive botanical garden in the U.S., the Dallas Arboretum is an exemplary attraction for any tour group. If you have children in your group, the Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden is an excellent place to start while adults may find more solace, relaxation, and adventure in gardens like A Woman's Garden, designed for a feminine connection with Mother Nature, or one of the other 18 beautifully landscaped gardens.
An intensely interactive, multi-sensory experience, the Dallas Arboretum ranks as one of the top botanical gardens for its abundance of visual stimuli, fragrant collections, and inclusion of all ages. See the lily pond and fountains of the Magnolia Glade, the tranquil views of the Margaret Elisabeth Jonsson Color Garden, and check out the seasonal designs of Autumn at the Arboretum festival in the Pecan Grove when the area is covered top to bottom in pumpkins.
The Arboretum's mission is to preserve history and nature, to provide educational and yet beautiful attractions for all ages. This giant 66-acre botanical garden is one of the best because of its dedication to aesthetic and environmental quality, its evolving style, and its classic devotion to plant life. There are various programs and classes, suitable for all ages, available through the park. Learn how to garden, take a photography class or creative arts program, or lead your young students through the gardens on a guided tour with the help of the park's employees! They're bound to have a wonderful time and learn amazing new information about the life of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden!
