  • This is one of the jewels of Fort Worth. I dont know the exact number of acres, but it is huge! I would consider it an all day attraction because there are many different sections to walk through. All...  read more »
  • In conjunction with the Japanese Botanical Gardens, a stunning and peaceful area to just wander around 
  • This is one of the most well thought out botanical garden designs we have ever seen. Exceptionally lush, manicured gardens spanning over 100 acres. There are ample benches in the shade to relax and enjoy amazing views of the gardens, lawns, art, and water features. The indoor conservatory and Japanese Gardens are the only exhibits that are not free, but they are more than worth the price of admission.
  • Beautiful expansive attraction in the heart of downtown Fort Worth. A great place to spend the day relaxing and taking in the lush gorgeous scenery. Most of the gardens offer free admission with the exception of the Japanese gardens which is well worth the small entry fee. There are events held here throughout the year. Once a year they have a butterfly exhibit and during the summer months the Fort Worth Symphony holds a concert in the gardens series that is phenomenal. The Fort Worth Botanic Gardens is also a wonderful place for outdoor weddings. My wife and I had our wedding here back in 2002 in the Oval Rose Garden and we couldn't have picked a more beautiful venue!
  • Beautiful gardens near downtown Ft. Worth. Not too crowded when we went, with the occasional group of people passing us on the path. Popular for weddings and graduation photos. Specialty gardens, like the Japanese or Rose Gardens, are an extra fee to get in. Bring plenty of water and wear sunscreen, as there are many areas with not a lot of shade.
  • Beautiful, expansive, marvelously well maintained. They aren't cool with frisbies, but it's as good a place as I know to eat a sandwich and read a book. Make sure to check out the spring butterfly garden.
  • Beautiful place to enjoy the day... alone, on a date, with a family of little kids. It's great for all ages. And Free! Of course seeing the gardens is a beautiful sight, but our family even loves to hike the woods. And our kids can't go w/o taking a trip to the children's garden in the back and play in the miniature yellow house :-)
