As one of North America’s finest display gardens, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is inspiring the beautification of North Texas and changing the world’s perception of Dallas. Among botanic gardens, the Dallas Arboretum has one of the country’s premier children’s education programs. Recognized as the forefront on horticultural research for heat-tolerant plants, our Plant Trial program expands our research efforts and provides information to the public. We trial between 3,000 and 5,000 plants annually from over 150 plant breeding companies and publish the results on our website. Your support will help us continue offering family friendly and educational opportunities for North Texans year-round. With all that we offer, we strive to keep the Arboretum affordable and welcoming for all. Here are ways in which we support the community and to continue doing so at this level, need your support:

Twenty-five thousand free tickets are distributed through Dallas Park and Recreation Centers

Weekly discounts for senior citizens

Complimentary admission for schoolteachers

Free admission on select dates for veterans and first responders

Free or reduced admission for 51% of school children visiting the Children’s Adventure Garden

Classroom outreach to 11,000 students


The mission of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is to build and maintain a public venue that promotes the art, enjoyment, and knowledge of horticulture, while providing opportunities for education and research.
