This summer, Dallas-area teens can take advantage of the City of Dallas All Access Pass program, which provides admission to local attractions at no charge.

Dallas Park & Recreation, in collaboration with local partners, announced the exciting opportunity for up to 10,000 teens between the ages of 13 and 17 in a news release on its website.

Through the program, eligible teens can enjoy admission at no charge to several museums, a botanical garden, a golf course, a fitness center, the Bahama Beach water park, a nature center, several cultural centers, theater performances, and more throughout the summer.

Speaking to local news outlet NBC 5 DFW, Steven Baker, superintendent of the Dallas Park & Recreation Department, explained how the program works.

“You can go to any one of our 40 recreation centers to pick up a pass as long as supplies last,” said Baker. “It’s limited to one pass per teen, and if a household has multiple teens in it, each teen is eligible to get a pass.”

The initiative aims to provide an enriching and enjoyable experience for Dallas teens throughout July and August. Dallas Park & Recreation and its local partners encourage eligible teens to take advantage of this valuable program.

Passes are available for pickup at all City of Dallas Recreation Centers while supplies last. Teens must register for their pass in person with a parent or guardian and present identification and proof of Dallas residency.

A local driver’s license or government-issued ID is sufficient, while other forms of ID — passport, out-of-state ID/DL, Matrícula Consular ID/Mexican ID card — are also acceptable but must be accompanied by a current utility bill showing Dallas residency.

Passes can be picked up now through the end of July at the following times:

  • Monday through Thursday: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Friday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
