  • We absolutely loved walking around the scenic grounds. The flowers and foliage are beautiful, with plenty of fragrant blooms, lush greenery, overhanging trellises, and water features. Wonderful for a ...  more »
  • This place is so nice, there's always engagement photos or wedding photos happening somewhere. There is a cafe on the premises and for $2 you can get into the Japanese gardens. Worth it and very nice. 
  • It was a nice stroll in this botanical garden, is a little careless, but however it has its charm. The Greenhouse is very beautiful full of different species of plants.

  • This was amazing! It was so large and well maintained, there was even a turtle pond and a Coy pond (those were HUGE). Plan on a LOT of walking there is a whole lot of nature to see. Also you can see almost anything there for free. Excellent place for a date or take the family.
  • A space for a liberating mental scape to stress! One can wonder and walk around well mantained landscape gardens to just let the mind settle and take you where most desired. During the summer, make sure to come support Concerts in the Garden performed by the fantastic musicians of the Fort Worth Symphony.
  • As a certified Arborist I work here often, caring for the older, mature and amazing variety of trees. Most gardens offer free admission and it is a great place to study, read, or take a relaxing walk while enjoying the beautiful atmosphere.
  • The FWBG is so beautiful. Very peaceful. We walked around for a couple of hours and didn't get to see everything. The Japanese Gardens are a must see.
  • 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.
