Enjoy Zilker for free

Friday, April 2, 2021 by Tai Moses

A handful of times each year, the Parks and Recreation Department offers the community free admission to Zilker Botanical Garden. These precious free days are sprinkled throughout the year and if you don’t mark them on your calendar, you’ll miss them. The next free day is Sunday, May 2, followed by free days on July 17, Sept. 12, Nov. 11 and Dec. 27. Free or not, you still need to get advance tickets to reserve your spot so the garden can make sure everyone is socially distanced, and free days can only be reserved two weeks in advance, so plan accordingly. By the way, those who have EBT, WIC, STAR, CHIP, Medicaid, or MAP ID cards through the Museums for All Program may enjoy the garden for free all year round.
