In honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden invites the community to the garden. As part of the January promotion, admission to the Arboretum is $5 now through January 31. The discount applies only to those purchasing tickets onsite at the ticket booth.
Mary Brinegar, Dallas Arboretum president, said, "Since many students and adults have Dr. King's birthday as a holiday and are looking for things to do as a family, we want to invite them to visit the garden together. We encourage guests to bring their cameras to capture those memories, bring a picnic or have lunch or seated tea at the Restaurant DeGolyer."USA Today has named the Dallas Arboretum as one of the 10 Best Attractions and Activities 10 Places to Visit in the city.
As guests stroll throughout the garden, they can also watch the horticulture staff plant and prepare the garden for the opening of the 31st Annual Dallas Blooms with the theme, Deep in the Hearts of Texans on February 28. That date also marks the reopening of the Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden, which has been closed for winterizing and maintenance.
For those interested in making reservations for the three-course Friendship Tea taking place now through February 27, reservations can be made by calling 214.515.6511 firstname.lastname@example.org. Seated tea is available for guests 13 years and older.
