The Space

This garden is available for Daytime and Evening.

This garden is beautiful all year, but especially shines in the spring and summer, when it blossoms with verdant life. Guests take a lot of photos and selfies here, sit for a spell and relax, soak in the cooling effects of the fountain and afternoon shade, and enjoy private events and weddings.

Tom and Phyllis McCasland have a special affinity for the Dallas Arboretum. Their 2006 contribution, the McCasland Sunken Garden, is evidence of their commitment to the continued expansion of the Arboretum. The McCasland Sunken Garden, designed by Warren Johnson of Fallcreek Gardens, is a renovation and upgrade of the original Sunken Garden. The central aisle, lined with Italian jardinières, leads down a series of steps towards a sunlit grass court surrounded by seasonal plantings.
