The first time we ever visited the Arboretum, it was August. August + Texas = Really, Really Hot, Y’all.
But we didn’t care! It was such a treat that we were happy to sweat a little in exchange for the stunning scenery and new experience…and I feel the same way today.
Summer heat is not enough to keep us away from the Dallas Arboretum, and I’ve learned that if you go in the morning it’s really not that bad, anyway.
This summer, you have LOTS of reasons to visit the Arboretum and the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden. I’m going to share a few of my favorite reasons to visit!
Stories in the Flower Village – Mondays in July, 11AM – Bring your little readers to the pecan grove for story time in the shade of the flower village.
Family Fun Fridays – Every Friday in July from 10AM=2PM in the pecan grove, families can enjoy a petting zoo, face painting, music, and story times (at 11).
Wednesday BOGO Admission – Through the end of July, admission prices are buy one, get one.
Bring a Friend Friday – download this coupon and on July 17th, get a friend in free with your paid admission.

If you haven’t visited the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, you’re missing out.
There is SO MUCH to do in the Children’s Gardens…both kids and adults will be entertained, learn something, and appreciate the “WOW” factor they have to offer.
It’s hot, I know…but there are plenty of misters to help cool you off. The kids will also have lots of chances to play in the water (next time we go, I’ll bring the kids in their bathing suits…there’s a big splash area at the entrance/exit to the gardens and several places throughout the gardens that are offer irresistible water play – you’ll want to let the kids get wet!).
