The Dallas Arboretum could open June 1 after closing in March because of the coronavirus. But temper your expectations. That date could change, an Arboretum spokeswoman told the Dallas Morning News.

Spokeswoman Terry Lendecker said neighbors could begin reserving their tickets one week before the reopening date. Tickets will not be sold at the gate.

Last week, Arboretum officials posted on social media that they were working closely with city and state officials on plans to reopen with additional safety precautions. No more than 1,000 guests will be allowed in the garden. “Tickets will be sold in four-hour, overlapping time blocks, with 250 tickets available in each window,” the Dallas Morning News reported.

The Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, as well as other public buildings and water stations will remain closed. No food or beverages will be sold, but guests may bring a picnic to eat in the open lawn area.

Rentals of golf carts, trams and wagons will not be available.

Bathroom access will be limited.
