Texas Discovery Gardens Meetup

  • Apr 24, 2012 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Texas Discovery Gardens at Fair Park
3601 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.
Dallas, TX 75210

Each Tuesday, the gardens are open for FREE (and butterfly house admission is only half price)!  Whoo-hoo!  Don't forget to bring your lunch/snacks and if the weather's nice we can eat picnic style!

***Ten themed areas include a butterfly habitat, native wildlife pond, scent garden, shade garden and heirloom garden.

The gardens offer workshops and guided tours that provide expert advice on using native and adapted plants to create backyard habitats for butterflies, birds and other native wildlife.

At Texas Discovery Gardens, visitors also discover a wealth of information on ways to restore, conserve and preserve natural environments in urban areas. It is the home of the first public garden in the state of Texas to be certified 100 percent organic by the Texas Organic Research Center.

The Gardens are also the home to the Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium. ***borrowed from website:

    The MNS is probably busier than the Texas discovery gardens that day I would think. From my experience, the kids will go a couple places in fair park during the course of the day and eat lunch outside. I could be wrong, but I used to work at a place where we provided funds for field trips. Who knows!

    Jen--this is not the arboretum.

    If it is crowded or hot outside we could go to the fair park aquarium or the museum of nature and science. I have 6 free tickets to the museum and planetarium that came with my membership.

    Eeep, busiest day of the year is not good! Also, I was wondering, is this truly kid friendly? I mean, is it like the Arboretum where your kid should definitely NOT pik the flora, etc.?

    Just a warning, this is one of the biggest field trip days of the year because it is a TAKS days. Grades 3-4 are taking the test, and schools often send out all the little kids to all the cultural organizations. Fair Park may be packed with little ones...
