Cool spot to check out. Quiet and interesting things to see. Just my husband and I attended. Not sure my kids interest would’ve been kept there for too long though.

Dallas offers so many expanding opportunities for family fun, and the botanical gardens are no exception. Full of plants and flowers, the botanical gardens provide an oasis full of life to those who want to experience it. The gardens are full of different types of plants and flowers; the greenery and natural surroundings provide a sense of peace and serenity. It's a great place to go for a walk or just sit and enjoy the view. I took my kids and they enjoyed running around while my wife and I walked slowly taking in all of the surrounding beauty. We signed up for annual membership and have access to several if not hundreds of gardens across the country.
This is the best garden 🪴 in the Dallas area. Fun for all ages and the perfect way to spend the weekend. Just be aware if the weather is nice, they get very busy. Well maintained and clean always. Be sure to check out I Love Juice Bar Lakewood which is a 2 minute drive. They have great smoothies and fresh juices.
