The first-ever photo of a total solar eclipse was taken 166 years ago in 1851. This will be the first total eclipse in nearly 40 years to be visible from the continental U.S., and the first in 99 years with the path of totality traveling from Oregon to South Carolina. Enjoy watching the eclipse at the Dallas Arboretum while visiting the gardens.
Guests may pack a picnic or enjoy $2 hot dogs from the Terrace Café. Kona Ice will have cool treats available for purchase, and eclipse-themed music will be playing as visitors view the unforgettable solar eclipse at the Camp Lawn overlooking White Rock Lake. Guests are encouraged to bring their own "viewing devices," however, complimentary special viewing glasses are available, (while supplies last).
Visitors may also view the solar eclipse in The Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden Moody Oasis, where kids can make their own "pinhole eclipse viewers" and learn more about the solar eclipse.
Oversize lawn games such as Jenga, Connect Four and Yardzee complete the activities for this event.
$1 admission for entrance into main garden, additional $1 for entrance into the Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden, parking is $5 per vehicle
