Autumn at the Arboretum is one of the most colorful and wonderful times to visit the Dallas Arboretum. Vibrant fall florals, thousands of bright pumpkins, gourds and squash decorate the grounds and enrich the area leading up to the phenomenal Chihuly installation of magnificant glass art.

As the weather promises to settle down from the record Texas heat, (it was rather warm the first week of the opening), fall will arrive and make this the most spectacular time to visit the Arboretum.

Autumn at the Arboretum runs from September 22 through November 21, 2012. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is located at 8525 Garland Road, Dallas, TX 75218. 214-515-6500.
