New safety guidelines will be in place when the gates open.
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will reopen its gates June 1 with timed ticketing and other safety precautions. The award-winning gardens closed in March because of COVID-19.
The Arboretum will accept reservations up to one week in advance. No walk-up tickets will be sold. Groups will be limited to five people or less. To keep the number of guests in the garden below 1,000, there will be a timed ticketing system with tickets sold for four-hour, overlapping time blocks. Parking spots will be assigned to maintain safe distancing, and the Arboretum encourages everyone over the age of 2 to wear face coverings when within six feet of others.
The Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, A Tasteful Place Tasting Garden, the gift shop and other public buildings will be closed. Water fountains will be turned off and trams will not be in operation. Only two restroom facilities will be available and limited to 25% occupancy. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own food and drinks and carry out their trash as they exit.
For reservations, visit dallasarboretum.org or call 214-515-6615.
