On this Saturday, Sept. 21, the Dallas Arboretum will dedicate and open the much-anticipated Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, the spectacular result of nearly two decades of nationwide research. The iconic Dallas Arboretum unveils its $62 million Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, a sprawling eight-acre interactive garden designed specifically to address state and national science standards in life, earth and environmental sciences. The Dallas Arboretum is setting the gold standard for outdoor children’s facilities with this garden — the only children’s educational garden of its scope in the world.
A “museum without walls,” children and adults will learn about science and nature in the 17 indoor and outdoor galleries that teach the areas in the prekindergarten to middle school curriculum standards that can best be taught outdoors. Some concepts include photosynthesis, pollination, the solar system, erosion and energy.
Hours and Admission Costs:
The Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a
week. Admission to the Dallas Arboretum is $15 for adults (13-64 years old), $12 for
senior citizens, $10 for children 3-12 years old. There will be an additional fee of $3
each for members and non-members to enter the RMCAG
