DALLAS - A ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday morning officially showcased the new $12 million garden at the Dallas Arboretum.
‘A Tasteful Place’ is something the arboretum has never seen before. It’s a display garden filled with ornamental vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers, plus a teaching kitchen, pavilion and event space. There’s also a newly developed lagoon and meandering walkways.
The space was inspired by the movement towards growing sustainable food locally.
It will be open during the popular “Autumn at the Arboretum” festival. Thousands of guests visit each year to see the pumpkin houses and more than 90,000 pumpkins and gourds.
