Dallas Arboretum Kicks Off August Dollar Days

We know it’s hot outside, but $2 admission to the Dallas Arboretum is a pretty tempting excuse to tackle the sun-drenched days of summer.

The garden is offering $2 general garden admission, $5 for parking, and $2 admission into the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden for the month of August.

The many floral beds are bursting with ageratum, impatiens, lobelias, petunias, cleome, begonias, salvia, marigolds and zinnias during the summer. As it heats up, caladiums, lantana, pride of Barbados, variegated tapioca, elephant ears, and coleus are added to the gardens.

Mark Wolf, Dallas Arboretum board chairman, said, “We look forward to record attendance this August, and with general garden admission being $2 per person, everyone can come enjoy the beautiful gardens at an affordable price.”

August Dollar Day tickets are available for purchase only at the gate.
