The Fort Worth Botanic Garden remains free except for the Japanese garden which has a nominal fee. Several acres of different gardens to stroll through and enjoy the plantings. Native birds and animals are present in the garden as well. The Japanese garden is beautiful in the fall with many maples trees and ponds with Koi. It comes alive in... More

Beautiful gardens for strolling, great restaurant for Sunday brunch by the butterfly house. In midst of Texas hot summers when the rest of the gardens are hot and unbearable, the Japenese gardens remain lovely. Try to go during spring azalea season. Stunning!

Short visit to the Ft. Worth Botanic Garden was very relaxing and beautiful. Lovely color and nicely designed! Peaceful and tranquil environment away from the city fast pace.

Coming here in the autumn is the best, before it gets really cool. October was a great time to come, with the northern breeze and still green foliage. This is not a huge layout, but it is an educational place to come, and just simply a walking place for couples to come and enrich conversation with the surroundings.

There are flowers, fountains, and grassy knoll . Whether you are taking pictures, having a picnic or strolling through, there is something for everyone.

There really is something for everyone! Activities and education panels for kids (and adults) along the boardwalk, lovely gardens, a fantastic Japanese Garden (worth the $5 just to see the massive Koi) and a cafe. The staff at the information centre are also very helpful with maps and advice.

We always are in Fort Smith in April so the conservatory is closed. But walk the grounds, tour all the area and enjoy this beautiful garden. I walk the area every year when we are in town.

The Fort Worth Bontanic Gardens are a must see in Fort Worth. We took our engagement pictures here and it was truly amazing.

If you visit Fort Worth this is a must visit. Open year around and full of gardens the Botanical is mostly FREE (see below) and a joy. Been here many times to take pictures, relax and even for my son's wedding. Bring your camera but if you bring a tripod you will have to pay a fee as a professional... More

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.
