Reserve Tickets for Member Days

We are excited to welcome you back to the garden and hope that you will enjoy the calm and beauty that nature provides. Our top priority is the health and safety of our guests and employees and we have put numerous safety protocols in place. We ask that you observe our new temporary guidelines.

Temporary Guidelines

Complimentary tickets and parking must be reserved online or by calling Customer Service at 214.515.6615 between 9am–6pm. These tickets are for four-hour visits. Early morning member walks begin on June 1. Tickets will become available on a rolling basis for dates up to seven days out.

Watch our video on how to reserve online tickets here.

  • Because of limits on the number of guests at one time, early arrivals will not be granted early admission. Similarly, late arrivals will be required to exit the garden at the end of the four-hour block. If you do arrive early we ask that you wait in the safety of your vehicle.
  • At each ticket window we will distribute wristbands indicating which four-hour block you have purchased. Wristbands must be worn for the duration of your visit.
  • Your parking location will be assigned at time of purchase to allow social distancing at the gates and in the parking lots.
  • Modified maps will be given to each guest at the Ticket Booth upon arrival.
  • Please be aware that in outdoor spaces or areas, every person over the age of two should consider wearing some form of covering over their nose and mouth such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandana or handkerchief when within six feet of another person. To enter any indoor or enclosed space or area, every person over the age of two must wear some form of covering over their nose and mouth. This COVID-19 admission policy does not require a child under the age of two or a person who is unable for medical reasons to wear a face covering.
