  • 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.

  • 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.
