Stop and Smell the Roses at the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden

Just fourteen minutes from The Ashton is a world-class, sixty-six-acre property that welcomes more than one million visitors every year.

We're talking about the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, which is considered one of the top arboretums in the world.

Nestled along the shore of White Rock Lake, it opened in 1984 and features nineteen themed gardens. They include:

DeGolyer Gardens

The centerpiece of this beautifully landscaped area is the 21,000 square foot home of Mr. and Mrs. Everette DeGolyer. Listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the Texas Register of Historic Places, the home is open daily for tours. As for the gardens, they were designed in 1940, and several of the original features remain. Highlights include the Sunken Garden, Magnolia Allee, and the Octagonal Fountain.

The Nancy Clements Seay Magnolia Glade

Surrounded by towering magnolias, the glade provides a tranquil space complete with a meandering waterway and beautiful lily pond. Throughout the year, it features different colors, though green and white are always prominent.

Lay Family Garden

Spanning 2.2 acres, the Lay Family Garden centers around native limestone walls with cascading waterfalls. It's the perfect place to take a leisurely stroll, and along the way, other things to see include colorful perennials, woody plants, and a koi pond.

Boswell Family Garden

Home to an array of rose varieties, the Boswell Family Garden offers a stunning vista of White Rock Lake. A stacked stone wall is the garden's backdrop, and hollies and a double helix hedge border the walkway that connects this garden to the McCasland Sunken Garden.
