Are you looking for something different to do this summer?
Then consider exploring the area’s scenic gardens.
They’re in all their glory during this time of year, and include:
Texas Discovery Gardens
The Texas Discovery Gardens is where visitors learn to sustain the natural world. The property encompasses more than seven acres, and the gardens are full of native plants and species from other regions that have adapted to the challenging climate of North Texas. After exploring the outdoors, head inside to the two-story Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House. Its tropical landscape is home to hundreds of butterflies that flutter from flower to flower.
Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is known as one of the world’s most breathtaking attractions of its type. Nestled on the shores of White Rock Lake, it spans sixty-six acres and strives to promote the art, enjoyment, and knowledge of horticulture. In 2016, more than one million visitors from all fifty states and ninety countries walked through the gates to see the colorful blooms and to enjoy an array of events.
There are over fifteen gardens to discover including the Eugenia Leftwich Palmer Fern Dell. It features a peaceful brook surrounded by ferns, azaleas, and mature trees, and its micro-fine mist system makes it especially popular during the summer months.
Fort Worth Botanic Garden
At the oldest botanic garden in Texas, visitors will see more than 2,500 plant species in twenty-three specialty gardens. Its land was once the site of three natural springs used by Indians and early settlers, and construction for the garden began during the Great Depression. Today, the Japanese Garden is one of the most popular attractions, and it opened in 1973 with cherry trees, magnolias, Japanese maples, and koi ponds.
