Dallas Arboretum Offers Special $2 Admission for August Dollar Days



The Dallas Arboretum announces the return of August Dollar Days during the dog days of summer. For the entire month of August, the garden offers $2 general garden admission, $2 admission to the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden and $5 for parking. Named one of The Country's Most Gorgeous Botanical Gardens by House Beautiful, the Dallas Arboretum has many floral beds blooming with impatiens, lobelias, begonias, salvia, marigolds, zinnias, caladiums, lantana, cannas, vinca and pentas. 

Visitors can also see what’s growing in A Tasteful Place, the Arboretum’s 3.5-acre potager garden, pavilion and kitchen inspired by the movement toward growing and eating fresh, sustainable, locally-grown food. Guests are welcome to free samples of the “hero” vegetable daily. On Mondays, Dallas College offers a free 11 a.m. cooking demonstration, and more activities occur throughout the month. 

Now through August 8, a highlight of Summer at the Arboretum is ZimSculpt, an exhibition of contemporary Zimbabwean stone sculptures. ZimSculpt features the talent of several contemporary Zimbabwean artists with more than 100 hand-selected, exquisite sculptures artfully displayed throughout the garden.

Guests are welcome to bring their own food or purchase food onsite. Window food service is available at the Terrace CafĂ© presented by Gil’s Elegant Catering and includes a selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, snacks, drinks and adult beverages. Dollar Days food specials include $1 sodas, juice and frozen pops, $2 root beer floats and hotdogs, and $4 brownie sundaes.

Advanced timed tickets are required for entry to the Arboretum by calling 214-515-6615 or visiting the website at https://www.dallasarboretum.org/ Visit dallasarboretum.org or social media sites for the latest information.
