The Dallas Arboretum is a 66-acre garden in southwest Dallas, on the edges of White Rock Lake. A large part of the arboretum sits on the grounds of the DeGolyer Estate, a 21,000-square-foot house built in 1939. Named one of MSN's "Top Ten Places to Visit in the Country" in 2007, the arboretum has nine gardens, including the Woman's Garden, with a beautiful reflecting pool overlooking White Rock Lake; DeGolyer Gardens, the home of a breathtaking alley of gigantic magnolia trees and the site of many weddings; and the Eugenia Leftwich Palmer Fern Dell, a min-garden that contains more than 90 varieties of ferns, camellias, witch hazel, azaleas, and mature trees. The garden is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; admission is $10 for adults 13–64, $9 for seniors (65+), and $7 for children 3–12.
