  • The gardens are immaculate! I went here in July so it was understandably scorching, but the greenery and the flowers were full fledged. The gardens are maintained very well and there isn't an extreme amount of people crowding the exhibits. Lastly, I would like to thank the park attendants for treating the squirrels, birds, and rabbits alike in that the critters are all a little tubby, and even more friendly!
  • I absolutely love this place. I am positively thrilled to recommend this place. Tge gardens are lovely, the staff gracious, the upkeep superb. One of my favorite places in Dallas. August is wonderful! It is dollar month and makes the experience affordable for everyone.
  • This place is beautiful and amazing. I had a wonderful visit all three times I went the staff is kind and the gardens are absolutely stunning! If your living here and have not seen the tulips in bloom be sure to check it out 💖
  • Beautiful gardens! Wonderful place for people of all ages to visit. Great walking paths throughout gardens. We don't miss Dallas Blooms or the Fall Festival. My only complaint is the family membership only allows for families up to six members. For my family of seven we had to purchase two memberships.
  • The gardens were nice and featured a wide range of plants and flowers but there is no escape from the Texas summer sun. If you're coming in the summer be prepared to be hot and make sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen if you burn easily. You have to pay for parking separately or risk being towed parking somewhere nearby and walking in. There are plenty of open green spaces if you want to bring food and have a picnic. The kids area has a separate admission fee but I didn't go so I can't comment on it's quality.
