DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – It may not feel like fall outside yet in North Texas, but the Dallas Arboretum has all kinds of new features ready for the fall season, including an attraction that makes learning interactive and fun for kids of all ages.
The Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden is so much more than trees and flowers. It is a place where learning about earth science can happen outside of the classroom. And it does not matter how old you are — the garden is made for everyone. “We call it a children’s garden but, I got to tell you, I think a lot of the kids are going to be over 45 that come here,” said Cecile Bonte. “Some people have said, ‘Do I have to come with a child?'”
The garden features over 150 exhibits — possibly more to see in one day. There is a skywalk, a maze, an interactive globe and more!
Also, the Pumpkin Village opens to the public on Saturday. It features 50,000 pumpkins and somewhere between 50 and 75 different types of gourdes that are all placed in a colorful fall display. Every single pumpkin came from the West Texas city of Floydada, which is known as the nation’s pumpkin capital.
The Dallas Arboretum is changing the menu, too, and offering a harvest tea, tasty sandwiches and sweet scones. There should be plenty of sights to see as the plants change and the fall season passes.
