Best Pumpkin Patches!
One of the things I love about fall is pumpkin and pumpkin patches. I used to love visiting them when my kids were little and still do with my grand kids. Traveling cross country, we were able to find some of the best pumpkin patches in the Western US and Eastern US and share them with you. Please come back and let me know if you visit one or maybe suggest one that we missed. Have fun and happy pumpkin hunting.

This pumpkin patch is not your typical pumpkin patch on a farm. In fact, many people come to the Arboretum to see the elaborate pumpkin displays in thePumpkin Village area and throughout the gardens. People can purchase pumpkins from our pumpkin patch to take home because we literally have all kinds in all shapes and sizes. Plus, it’s all wrapped around a fall festival in one of the loveliest gardens in Dallas.
