We have been to other Botanic Gardens in the US but I loved the Fort Worth one in particular because of its beautifully done Japanese Garden Section. It is so cool and fresh, colorful in the spring and just as fine in Autumn. I loved the gift shop and bought exquisite Japanese rice bowls. The rest of the park is... More

Particularly the Japanese guardians. My kid loves feeding the giant fish and ducks. Early morning is the best time to attend.

We really like going here in the spring especially when the roses are in bloom. Tons of photo ops with the family. The bi-annual butterfly show in the green house is always good fun.

I walked the entire garden which is free and found it to be very beautiful. The boardwalk has informative facts for children which I found fun. I paid to go through the Japanese Gardens and it was well worth the $5. They were tastefully done as well as educational. It was super hot out but there are several resting spots... More

This is several beautiful gardens in one place. The rose garden is one of the most photographed in area and a you often see young ladies in their quinceanera dresses (sweet 15 in Hispanic culture) my daughter calls them princesses. The Japanese garden is beautiful too. It is the only part of the park that requires paid entrance but the... More

Such a beautiful Garden. There are so many species of plants. One would never expect this in the heart of Texas, and yet here it is.

A beautiful place for a stroll or a very long walk. Well done gardens & labeling on the plants. I would have needed days to see it all.

I have been to many botanical gardens in my travels, and I must say this one, very near my home, is a bit on the disappointing side. The Japanese gardens are a little nicer than the rest, but also not inexpensive. There has also been ongoing construction in several areas, making them inaccessible or unsightly. All in all, a disappointment... More

Grounds are beautiful even during hot Texas summer. Japanese Gardens are quite peaceful oasis in the middle of downtown.

Does Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus appetizer or a main course of Poblano Tilapia , or Bistro Shrimp Pasta finished off with a wonderful Tiramisu sound like what one would find in a Botanical Garden? That is only a small offerings of the restaurant located on the grounds. It is all very yummy! OK, first of all come early if... More
