“Continuing a year marked by top local and national recognition as a favorite destination, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden has now been named by Architectural Digest as one of the world’s 15 most breathtaking botanical gardens. The magazine, which celebrates international design talent, lists the Arboretum in its just-released recommendations for breathtaking international displays of horticulture, including destinations on five continents.
Presented as number two on the list, it includes international public botanic gardens such as Gardens of the Palace of Versailles in Versailles, France, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, in Cape Town, South Africa, and Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
“We’re honored to have such a discerning voice as Architectural Digest include us in this season’s ‘must see’ international travel recommendations,” said Mary Brinegar, President of the Dallas Arboretum. “Our garden offers breathtaking flowers arranged in impeccable displays that capture the magic of each season, making us a popular stop among beauty seekers year-round.”
The Arboretum was recently awarded a 2016 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, and has been the number one choice for entertainment in the city by Trip Advisor contributors for many years. This Spring, USA Today also named it one of the top 10 Best Botanical Gardens in the United States, and Blooms as one of the top 10Best Floral Festivals in the country. Architectural Digest hails the 66-acre garden for its thriving ferns and azaleas, as well as its unrivaled views of the downtown skyline throughout its 19 gardens.”
Congratulations to the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden!
