It is more than a simple arboretum! It is a fun way for children to learn about real food and how it grows. Also there are always seasonal exhibits. My favorite is the Halloween one. Everyone in the family will love it!

Any time of day at any season, this place is a true delight. Make it a point to visit--whether you are a local or visitor. Take some time to get off the main paths and soak in the nature.

Not at the Arboretum, but at Fair Park, about four miles southeast. There are several fireworks displays visible from White Rock Lake Park, but they are several miles away.
