Not as good as it used to be. I remember in early 2000's this place was thriving. Now it is totally the opposite. Very little displays and a few pieces of what they call gardens. I hope the management will revive it before it is too late.

Botanic Garden had a lovely staff and it was free to get in (at least most parts were free), but there was not so much flowers in September as it was quite dry. Although it was a serene place to spend some time.

Not the best time of the year to see the most beautiful flowers but the grounds were well groomed and clean. The foliage that is in bloom was beautiful.

I was expecting another park with trees, flowers and such, being nice to walk through but not much special otherwise. But when ended up there just to spend one of the weekend days, it turned out to be a very beautiful place, especially the "inner" Japanese Garden. In the end, we spend there almost whole day, and came back next... More

Fort Worth Botanical Gardens is a oasis of calm and beauty right in the middle of the city...a truly wonderful, expansive place (110 + acres). FWBG is probably my favourite place to go in the spring ( and to a lesser degree in Fall). Start at the visitor center and pay the $1 or $2 to stroll through the amazing... More

Beautifully kept rose garden, and lovely open spaces to enjoy if you have kids. I could sit there for hours and take in the nature. You would hardly know it's right next to a main avenue with all the trees that block out the sound of traffic.

Great way to see the gardens. Trip is a little fast paced for those who are visiting the park for the first time and really want to "smell the flowers". Our tour guide, Emily, was knowledgeable about the workings of the gardens and was patient and helpful.

110 acres of serenity, including one of the top Japanese Gardens in America. The 8 acre Japanese Garden, containing authentic Japanese architecture, symbolic statuary, Royal Koi fish, serene lakes and one longtime resident Blue Heron named "Gobbler" make this your "go to" venue while in Fort Worth. The Japanese Maples turn a brilliant red in the autumn of the year.... More

If you love gardens, you won't want to miss stopping by here. The gardens are kept immaculate. The beauty speaks for itself. A perfect place for nature/garden lovers to spend hours.
