Gardens tend to be magical places that make us feel like all our problems have faded away. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is an amazing place to spend the day and does just that. They have cafes, picnic areas, and a breathtaking view of White Rock Lake. Sometimes, however, it can get a little pricey to take a little walk around the gorgeous garden. Thankfully for the entire month of August, the Botanical Garden is offering $2 admission for their visitors.
During this time, parking will only be $5 and entry to the Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden will only be $2, which, trust us, is not only fun for the kids. Visitors are more than welcome to bring their own snacks and treats for a picnic but there will be food deals during the month as well. Terrace Café will offer $1 juice, sodas, and frozen treats. They will also have $4 brownie sundaes and $2 rootbeer floats.
The normal entrance fee at the Botanical Garden can get up to $17 for adults, depending on the time of the year, and parking is normally $15 year-round. Visitors will be able to see everything the Arboretum has to offer including access to all the amazing hidden statues, displays, and their cafes. The cafe has free daily tastings and the pavilion has an outlook view of the lake that is perfect for picture taking and relaxation.
The garden is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day of the week. With 66 acres of amazing things to explore any day you do will be a great one.
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden are located at 8525 Garland Rd, Dallas, TX 75218. For more information on the garden and to purchase tickets, you can visit their website here.
