Dallas area teenagers will have free access to cultural and educational attractions throughout the city this summer.

Mayor Eric Johnson and the Dallas Park and Recreation Department announced that the Teen All-Access Pass is available to children ages 12 to 17 and pass holders can include up to three friends or family members for free through Saturday, July 31.

“I’m thrilled to announce that through our @DallasParkRec, Dallas residents ages 12-17 can visit many amazing cultural and educational venues free of charge in July. And they can take three people with them! Teen All-Access Passes are available at any of our rec centers,” Johnson said on a June 29 Twitter post.

The pass is available at any of Dallas’ 43 recreation centers.

Among the places that the pass is honored at include but are not limited to the Dallas Zoo, Dallas Arboretum, Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum, Shakespeare Dallas, Trinity River Audubon Center, Bahama Beach Waterpark and the Southern Skates Roller Rink.

The passes “represent an incredible opportunity for our kids to learn and grow this summer after a stagnant year of staying home,” Johnson said, told by WFAA.

Park and Recreation officials are hopeful that the program will grow by other organizations becoming sponsors or joining the initiative.

The opportunity would, “create unforgettable memories and meaningful experiences, explore their creative passions and have fun at diverse entertainment venues and attractions in Dallas,” the President of the Dallas Park and Recreation Board Calvert Collins-Bratton said.

After an uptick in violent crime, officials worked to find a way to keep teens engaged in the summer. Tarrant County has experienced 16 deaths last month. One 16-year-old Arlington teen died after a shooting in the Hurricane Harbor parking lot.
