It’s hard to imagine a time when the west coast of White Rock Lake wasn’t dominated by the 66 acres of lush public space called the Dallas Arboretum, but it didn’t open officially until 1984 — the same year Dallas Voice was founded. And the two institutions have grown up together, with the arboretum being much more than just gardens of flowers and plants. There are also historic buildings to explore (primarily the impressive mansion called the DeGolyer House), a culinary kitchen and numerous gazebos and courtyards that are transformed by the designers and horticulturalists into dynamic displays of color and vegetation. Whenever someone tells you Dallas lacks natural beauty, send them here — they will quickly shut up.
