To kick off the new year and encourage people to enjoy the gardens and be outdoors, the Dallas Arboretum is offering $5 admission beginning January 4 and continuing through January 31 for non-members. Members receive complimentary admission year round. This offer is only available when purchased at the gate.
Dave Forehand, Dallas Arboretum’s vice president of gardens, said, “After the holidays, we all need some motivation to get moving, and there is not a more beautiful place to walk than along the one-mile fitness trail at the Dallas Arboretum. This discount will also encourage more people to see the winter plantings and get a sneak peek as we plant and prepare for our acclaimed Dallas Blooms festival.”
Featuring Gary Lee Price’s Great Contributors Exhibit, Dallas Blooms, the largest floral festival in the Southwest, opens February 27 with the theme “The Artistry in Nature” featuring American sculptor Gary Lee Price’s Great Contributors Bronze Statues collection on display throughout the botanical garden. The 66-acre garden will explode with color with the blossoming of 500,000 spring-blooming bulbs, thousands of azaleas and hundreds of cherry trees. Presented by Bank of America, Dallas Blooms continues through April 10.
Those coming out during January can also enjoy an elegant, three-course Friendship Tea for a lasting memory for those 13 and older. Prices range between $39 and $49 and include parking and admission to the garden.
