Admission to the Garden During COVID-19
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.
Effective May 1, when outdoors in the garden, face coverings are not required but still suggested when social distancing is not an option. Face coverings are still required for all indoor spaces with no exceptions. We are still requiring face coverings during the Cool Thursdays Concerts, as well as for staff and volunteers. That policy does not change.
For temporary guidelines, accessibility and admission
please review our Know Before You Go FAQ.
Failure to comply with the rules may result in your removal from the premises. Please note that you are visiting the Dallas Arboretum at your own risk.

If the rain won’t go away, you can come back another day! The Arboretum’s rainy day pass will guarantee another free entry if rain interrupts your visit. Tickets are issued at the ticket booth on the day of the occurrence only. Offer valid for a full paid general garden admission. Rainy day tickets are good any day from 9am-5pm for up to three months from the original date of purchase. Rainy day passes are only good for the original type of ticket purchased.
