Dallas Arboretum $5 Admission in January

It's not too late to take advantage of the January special at the Dallas ArboretumNow through January 31, the Dallas Arboretum invites you to enjoy the facility and gardens for only $5 admission

“The Dallas Arboretum is one of the top 10 botanical gardens in the world, according to the Travel Channel, and it’s pretty nearly all year long,” said Brian Shivers, Dallas Arboretum board chairman. “With this discount for entrance, we want to encourage people to see the pansies, ornamental kale and winter plantings, to walk the one mile fitness trail throughout the garden, and to get a sneak peek as we get ready for the 30th anniversary of Dallas Blooms.”

2014 marks the 30th anniversary of the Dallas Arboretum’s major floral festival Dallas Blooms with the theme “Birds in Paradise.” Bank of America is the presenting sponsor of Dallas Blooms, with Park Place Dealerships and Celebrity Cruises as supporting sponsors. Dallas Blooms begins on February 22, 2014, and runs through April 6, 2014. The garden explodes with color as more than 500,000 spring-blossoming bulbs burst, and the beloved peacock topiaries return to spread their colorful petal tails in the Jonsson Color Garden.

As part of Dallas Blooms, the Dallas Arboretum also launches its Bird House Exhibit, life-size playhouses designed by local architects to complement this year’s theme, Birds in Paradise. This creative exhibit is located in the Lakeside Exhibit Area. Children can play in these bird houses, while learning about bird predators, bird adaptations, how they find prey, how they camouflage themselves and survive, how they migrate, how they create nests, lay eggs and more. For more information on Dallas Blooms’ 30th anniversary, call 214.515.6500 or visit the Arboretum’s website at www.dallasarboretum.org
