The pumpkin lined path leads you through the Dallas Arboretum.

Tucked away in the beautiful White Rock Lake area of Dallas lies the Dallas Arboretum. This sprawling botanical garden has over 66 acres of plant life, sculptures and trails. The displays are changed four times per year to truly capture the beauty of each season. 

Every fall the Arboretum pulls out the stops with deep, rich color, in-season plants, and, of course, plenty of pumpkins, squashes and assorted gourds. Included in the installation is an area with structures clad in pumpkins and gourds. It is both lovely and educational.
