The Arboretum is definitely a great place to go with friends, family, or on a date. It is a nice place to see plants and flowers, especially in the Spring (Summer is a little hot as most of the thing is outside, of course). It is very big and has a few places to eat. The views are very great--you can see White Rock Lake from parts of it. Kids will always like to go to the bamboo forest and explore, but make sure they don't get lost! Another good one is the giant frog attraction, which spout water from their mouths!
