Spring Break in Dallas at The Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden

Dallas Children's Garden

Ever since the Children’s Adventure Garden at the Dallas Arboretum opened in 2013, I’ve been wanting to make it up there. The Garden was designed to connect kids with nature and sits on 8 acres with over 150 kid-friendly activities, including The Texas Skywalk, The Moody Oasis, a Walk in the Clouds and more. I was considering visiting on Presidents Day, but the Garden was closed for maintenance. In case you are looking for a quick getaway for Spring Break, your littles can learn about migration patterns in birds with Migrating North, explore amphibians during Wetland Wonders and give your brain a workout with Cranium Clues.

Here are the activities planned at the Garden during Spring Break:
