Soak up Spring at The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
Nestled on the southeast shore of White Rock Lake is a destination that Southern Living calls one of the "Best Places to See Stunning Spring Blooms Across the South."
It's called the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, and nearly one million visitors walked through the gates last year.
The arboretum is one of the country's youngest botanical gardens, and highlights include:
The Lyda Bunker Hunt Paseo de Flores
Commonly referred to as The Paseo, this meandering pathway acts as the garden's central walkway. As visitors take a stroll, they can enjoy photo opportunities at the Magnolia Glade and the Pecan Grove.
Margaret Elizabeth Jonsson Color Garden
Featuring a field of color, this picturesque garden showcases over 2,000 varieties of azaleas which bloom lavishly during the spring months. Summertime brings a vibrant display of tapioca and banana plants, while autumn delights with brightly colored chrysanthemums.
Eugenia Leftwich Palmer Fern Dell
With plenty of shade and misters, the Eugenia Leftwich Palmer Fern Dell is about ten degrees cooler than the rest of Dallas. It comes complete with 90 varieties of ferns, camellias, and azaleas, and this tranquil oasis is where many visitors capture stunning photographs.
Designed in 1940, the DeGolyer Gardens still includes a few original features such as Magnolia Allee, the Octagonal Fountain, and the Sunken Garden. At the center stands a 21,000 square foot house that was once the home of Mr. & Mrs. Everette DeGolyer. Everette was known as the "founder of applied geophysics" in the petroleum industry and enjoyed collecting rare books. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is open for daily tours.
