Tour Bus Groups & Organizations

The Dallas Arboretum is conveniently located 2 miles from both Interstate Highway 635 and Interstate Highway 30, with easy access and complimentary parking for tour buses. Bus drop-off and pick-up locations make it very convenient for large groups to visit. For groups, we offer discounted tickets, guided tours, and lunches as explained below.

Group Tickets

The Dallas Arboretum offers discounted tickets for daytime groups of 15 or more. Discounted group tickets are purchased in advance of your scheduled trip to the Arboretum. Group tickets purchased online must be paid in advance at the point of sale. Once full payment is made, the group invoice will be sent to you via email. Group tickets are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged: however, the date can be moved with enough advance notice and availability.

Group Lunches

The Dallas Arboretum offers a pre-selected luncheon to groups of 15 or more who visit the Arboretum. Upon receiving your box lunch selections, we will order the lunches and have them ready for you. Every visit to the garden is enhanced when accompanied by a pre-selected box lunch to be enjoyed at any of the picnic sites in the garden. A more elegant three-course seated lunch is also available. Final purchase of meals and selections of menu items will need to be received at least 72 hours or 3 business days prior to your scheduled visit to the Arboretum. All payments for meals must be paid in advance. 

We offer two pre-arranged dining options for groups:

Group Tours

The Dallas Arboretum offers guided tours to enhance your Arboretum experience. With a guided tour, your group will walk the Arboretum with an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide who will provide information about the history of the Arboretum as well as information about the gardens and plants. Tours can be customized to your interests and length of time you would like to tour. They can be as short as 45 minutes or can last up to 2 hours. While planning your trip to the Dallas Arboretum, keep in mind our busy festivals such as Dallas Blooms, Autumn at the Arboretum and Holiday at the Arboretum. All group tours need to be made at least 2 weeks in advance. 

Additional Discounts

The Dallas Arboretum offers large groups discounts in other areas of the Garden as well. Take advantage of a 10% discount at the Hoffman Family Gift Shop offered to all groups who pre-purchase tickets through our Group Sales Coordinator. These coupons will be passed out upon your group’s arrival (upon request). Additionally, as a “thank you” for bringing your large group via bus, we offer free bus parking to all groups arriving on a bus or van.
