  • Could be romantic, fun, relaxing, whatever you want it to be! The $7 for the Japanese garden is worth it. Really great experience. When we were here there were a lot of people taking graduation, prom, and wedding pictures. There was even a wedding reception that blocked off a portion of the garden. None of that took away from the beauty and enjoyment of the place. The ONLY knock is that the highway is pretty close by and you can here the rushing cars going by on that side of the gardens.
  • This place has a tranquil setting and beauty that cannot be ignored. Dallas residents have the Arboretum, and Fort Worth folks have the Botanic Garden. Such a wonderful, lush park with trails, superb landscaping and friendly staff. Always clean and maintained well. A perfect place for weddings, romantic day trips, trail walking and relaxation. Plenty of shaded areas and hidden gems to find here so feel free to explore. Highly recommended.
  • I go here at least twice a month to just forget about everything and enjoy nature. The Japanese gardens are amazing. You do have to pay to access it. But isn't too expensive. Outside the Japanese gardens there are plenty of other gardens and trails to go through. This place is also great for photo shoots and weddings.
  • The flowers and scenery is outstanding. Miles of beauty! Even though the temperature was hot and humid your path led you through trees and overhanging bush. Path over creeks and around fountains. A huge rose garden. Did not make it to the Japanese Garden. Have to do that next time
  • Been coming here for years. Best public gardens in the DFW area by far. The Japanese garden is well worth a yearly membership if you go even a couple times per year. Especially nice during the spring and fall.
