During Labor Day weekend, September 4 to 7, admission to the Dallas Arboretum is significantly discounted to $5 per person including admission to the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden. Labor Day weekend tickets must be purchased at the gate in order to receive this special offer.
As the last days of summer are celebrated with a holiday weekend, guests can enjoy several activities along with the discounted admission to the Arboretum. In the internationally acclaimed Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, the Moody Oasis is the place to “bee” on Friday, September 5 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Children and adults can explore the inner workings of a honeybee hive with Scott the Beekeeper and find answers to questions such as, “Why do honeybees make honey, and why are they so important?”
Guests will also be invited to create and design a special hands-on project with the Home Depot team on Sunday, September 6 at 10 a.m. in the Children’s Adventure Garden.

The many floral displays in the main garden will include the final delicate crimson petals of the dramatic Crepe Myrtle Allee cascading down during the first weeks of September. As summer ends, bright spots of marigolds, dahlias and black-eyed susans appear throughout the garden, creating the quintessential setting for an afternoon picnic and according to Forbes Travel Guide, “The Best Ways to Do Dallas Outdoors”.
Wrapping up the holiday weekend, guests are invited to the shady Pecan Grove on Monday, September 7 for special activities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Activities will bring the Texas Storybook Flower Village to life, including a petting zoo, live music and a red, white and blue stroller parade with special prizes awarded.
