Explore this incredible garden created for children at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. It is a must see!

The Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is an incredible space for children to learn, play, and explore the beauty of nature. There are revolving exhibits geared towards kids and nature, 17 indoor/outdoor galleries, 150 interactive science games, and edible garden, water features, and over 8,000 square feet of misters. Tickets are $3 for ages 2 and over, and children under 2 get in for free. There are plenty of activities in this little oasis for children of all ages. There are daily happenings in the garden including the Omni outlook, where you can learn all about the latest weather and climate news from a giant rotating globe. Little adventurers are invited for a hands-on learning experience with stories, songs, crafts, and even more. There are even plant labs for ages 6 and above in the exploration center for little scientists to join the lab specialist. The architecture in the garden is beautiful and is cohesive with the natural scenery. There is a Texas Skywalk that takes you through the tree canopy and teaches all about what trees do in our environment and what lives in their canopies. There are tons of interactive and engaging installations that encourage learning through sensory in this Children's Garden. I highly recommend putting this on your list of things to do in Dallas with kids!
