The new $62 million Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden has an intricate, 8-acre garden that grows with your child. With more than 150 interactive exhibits in 17 themed areas, the garden offers an oasis for infants and irresistible destinations for exploration as they grow up to be toddlers, early elementary schoolers, middle schoolers and teens. Best of all, they’ll be having so much fun, they won’t realize how much they’re learning on their journey, each step of which has been meticulously designed with state and national curriculum standards for life and earth sciences in mind.

Located on the shores of White Rock Lake, The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is a nationally recognized display garden. Spanning over 66 acres, The Arboretum provides rotating displays four times a year, delivering breathtaking color for visitors from March through November.
