The mission of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is to build and maintain a public venue that promotes the art, enjoyment and knowledge of horticulture, while providing opportunities for education and research. We are committed to excellence, good management and fiscal responsibility.
Located in the heart of Dallas, the gardens are comprised of two estates, the DeGolyer estate and the Camp estate. The garden is open year round and only closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Years Day.
The Dallas Arboretum, one of the most beautiful outdoor attractions in Dallas, features 66-acres of spectacular display gardens that showcase incredible seasonal flowers, ornamental shrubs, trees and plant collections in a serene setting on White Rock Lake.
The Arboretum is home to seasonal outdoor festivals, concerts, art shows and more. Throughout the year, guests enjoy both indoor and outdoor dining in either Restaurant DeGolyer in our historic DeGolyer House or on the Lula Mae Slaughter Dining Terrace overlooking White Rock Lake and downtown Dallas.
Guests can also enjoy making memories with friends and family at high tea offered throughout the year. Children and adults alike enjoy year-round education programs on gardening, art, hands-on science and offer plenty of outdoor exploration. The gardens, world-famous for their beauty, are chosen by many brides for their photos and their wedding.
