Anna Hautzinger 3 years ago 0.0 Your rating: The Arboretum is on a lake, a short drive from downtown Dallas. There is a separate children’s area with an additional admission fee. The garden currently has a pumpkin town, and there are displays for the 12 days of Christmas erected, with only a few on view. A portion of the garden is closed for renovation, but the rest has meandering trails, different atmospheres and scenic vistas. A must visit place, if only for the calming beauty.
