The Arboretum features the only public display of the Huang Collection of azaleas outside of China.

What’s Special

The new Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden

The Garden, designed for preschool to middle school children, is really an 8 acre laboratory with 17 outdoor and indoor galleries, each designed around a key science theme. In each of these galleries there are many hands-on exhibits and real plants and animals that are examples of these science concepts. The children will be immersed in nature; walking on boardwalks through grass tunnels, exploring a full-acre wetlands, walking along the Texas Skywalk through the tree canopy and under a waterfall. They will explore a “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” world where everything is giant-sized, learn that their food comes from plants and the critical people-plant-animal connections- outdoors where nature is real.

The indoor plant lab and discovery center will enable children to discover even more using technology and the tools of science. They will visit a plant lab, a soil lab, a 3-D mini theater; solve a CSI mystery and much more.

The site of this amazing and innovative new garden is at the north end of the Arboretum on the hillside overlooking White Rock Lake. This precious lake-view will also encourage children to see the beauty of nature while unlocking its mysteries.
