It’s only the third day of August and the temperature is barely going to hit 90 degrees thanks to clouds. Really? Yup! And the next few days are going to be repeats with off-and-on rain. Why the weather forecasting? Because the timing couldn’t be better to take full advantage of the Dallas Arboretum’s August Dollar Days.
Talk about an Arboretum Prime Month! Admission to the 66-acre grounds is a buck. And even the entry fee to the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden is a dollar. But wait! It only gets better. The usual $8-$15 for parking is dropped to $5. Sodas, juice and frozen pops will be a $1. Hotdogs and root beer floats will be $2. And for $4 you can get a sundae.
If you’ve been putting off a stroll through the grounds or schmoozing with the squirrels because you were on a killer budget, skip dessert or that latte and you’ll take in one of North Texas’ true treasure.
Who knows? You just find it to your liking that you’ll buy a membership that will allow you to free year-round general garden admission, free parking, express entry during major events and other perks.
August Dollar Days is being made possible thanks to Presenting Sponsor Reliant.
