Dallas Arboretum Reopens June 1st with Advance Ticket Reservations Required
WHEN: Monday, June 1st
WHO/WHAT:The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden reopens and welcomes visitors just in time to celebrate the beginning of summer to enjoy the outdoors. Advance online timed tickets are now required. Face masks are highly encouraged in the garden, but they are required in restrooms and indoor facilities. To keep guests and employees safe, the garden is operating with new federal, state and local guidelines to minimize physical contact and adhere to social distancing including the City of Dallas’ policy and guidelines for wearing masks. In addition, a maximum of 1,000 people are allowed in the garden at any one time during a four-hour block. The Dallas Arboretum has created a modified path around the garden to make it easier for people to enjoy the beautiful grounds while social distancing. There is also a half-mile path from each parking lot. The Paseo de Flores is now two ways in most areas, so people may come in and take a quick trip to their favorite picnic areas. Guests can also enjoy respite in the Pecan Grove, the Jonsson Color Garden, on the Camp House Lawn and the lawn of the Lay Family Garden.
