American Horticultural Society (AHS) Reciprocal Admissions Program Policy

Clark Gardens is a participating garden in the American Horticultural Society (AHS) Reciprocal Admissions program. Garden guests who are members of a participating garden will receive free daily admission to the garden. Reciprocal admissions may not be used on ANY festival or special events day, such as Holiday Festival, Train Show, Summer Solstice or any other special event. We strongly recommend that individuals planning to use their AHS Reciprocal admission call ahead before their visit to inquire about exclusions.

Upon arrival to the garden all visitors please proceed to the Admissions Booth. A current membership card from the AHS or a participating garden entitles the visitor to a complimentary admission for one to the gardens. Each person using the reciprocal membership must show photo identification with current home address and a membership card in their name from their originating garden.

No discounts are given for tours, classes, or member only events.


The AHS program allows for a 90 mile exclusion policy. However, Clark Gardens will allow members of both Dallas Arboretum and the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens reciprocal admission unless the visitor is a resident of Parker or Palo Pinto County.
