Reciprocal Admissions Program
A Dallas Arboretum membership entitles you to special admission privileges and discounts at more than 300 botanical gardens and arboretums in North America.
Making summer travel plans?
In addition to free general garden admission and a variety of discounts, your Dallas Arboretum membership grants you admission privileges and benefits at more than 300 other gardens in North America. There are many wonderful gardens in Texas alone – this summer, as you and your family may consider a road trip, consider using the benefits that your membership offers by visiting one of our great state’s beautiful botanical gardens.
We recommend that you call all gardens ahead of time before you plan your visit. Some gardens have exclusions for special events or exhibits. Each garden has its own distinct admissions policies and hours of operation, which is also why we recommend checking ahead of time to get the most up-to-date information.
