Take advantage of August Dollar Days at the Dallas Arboretum, one of the top places to visit in Dallas.
With temperatures rising, people are looking for cool places to relax in Dallas. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden recommends several locations within its large 66-acre garden to stay cool while enjoying the Texas summer.
This summer, Forbes Travel Guide named the Dallas Arboretum 'The Best Ways To Do Dallas Outdoors'.
"The time is perfect to visit the Dallas Arboretum area this summer as we will offer August Dollar Days, presented by Time Warner Cable, with significant savings for customers," said Bill Graue, President Dallase Arborm.
The garden will offer $1 and $2 general garden admission to Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden during August. There will also be $1 and $2 food value options through the grounds.
As part of its Connect a Million Minds Initiative (CAMM), Time Warner Cable partnered with the Dallas Arboretum to provide August Dollar Days to the general public and to support STEM extracurricular activities (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) in what applies to science and nature.
Saturday, August 15 is Time Warner Cable Day at the Dallas Arboretum. From 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at Rosine Hall, visitors to the garden, with their paid entrance, will have the opportunity to participate in practical STEM activities. Kids and young people at heart will explore fun STEM activities designed to stretch their imagination.
Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden has more than 8,000 square feet of mist across the entire eight-hectare garden, so there are cool spots throughout to combat the heat. The theme of this garden is water, so there are plenty of areas with water including the waterfall area and the entrance with fountains.
This summer, the most popular area is the entrance where they spray the vertical water fountains periodically as children have fun in this area and enjoy getting wet.
Another popular area is The Island of Energy, where visitors can learn how to take advantage of water, wind and sun and turn it into electricity with interactive displays that offer water.
Children and adults can fire water pistols, turn cranks and move water in Tornillo of Archimedes.
In First Adventure, a space dedicated to children six and less, there are fungi that "sprout" water next to a small Turtle Creek River.
After playing outdoors, guests are invited to the 9,000 square foot indoor Exploration Center to watch an educational video at the 3-D Mini Theatre, explore CSI games, conduct experiments in the plant lab, and learn about space and time with one of the few OmniGlobes in Texas.
