On weekdays, guests visiting the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure may park in the Children’s Adventure Garden lot at the north end of the property for $15 per car (free for members).

Please do not park in the neighborhoods surrounding the Arboretum. The streets have tow-away zone signage and the Arboretum upholds this request from our neighbors.

Cool Thursday Concert Parking

  • Due to limited parking at Gate #2 and in the interest of safety, all concert parking is limited to the main lot at Gate 1 and the Parking Garage.
  • We also ask guests not come to Gate #2 for any reason, such as to drop off people or personal effects such as coolers. Guests attempting to drop off at Gate #2 will be turned away.
  • Parking in the Camp parking lot and check in at the Camp ticket booth are reserved for concert sponsors and “Friends” level donors.

At night, parking will be limited to the two floors below ground as part of zoning agreement with City of Dallas, to eliminate any noise or light so as to avoid disrupting the neighborhood. Staff and volunteers can use the Garland Road side of level one.
