The Fort Worth Botanic Gardens and the Japanese Gardens are just incredible. The sprawling complex has such a variety of landscapes, layouts and venues for enjoying the outdoors that you will never run out of places to picnic. The annual fireworks in the park with the Fort Worth Symphony is a MUST DO! Weddings, senior photos and gorgeous plant life... More

Like all things Fort Worth, the gardens have seen growth and improvements since we lived in the area in the 1980s. On a recent trip back we went to the Botanical Gardens and walked through wonderful areas to get to the Japanese Gardens, which now covers seven acres. I personally have held the Fort Worth Japanese Garden in high regard... More

The Japanese Garden in Fort Worth, Texas, is one of my very favorite places in the world. Lush, dense, gorgeous, fertile, aromatic, and wet only begin to describe it. The paths wind thru the gardens and pools and streams. I could get lost there forever and die happily....Words don't suffice to describe its beauty. An hour is enough to see... More

Texas is hot and dry, and Fort Worth is considered to be "where the West begins". You would not realize the aforementioned fact while strolling in these gardens. When my children were younger I probably took them most days of the week. I go here every year on my birthday if I am in town. I love the gardens. Others... More

Super place to spend some time looking at flowers and insects. Lots of bees and bumble bees on the flowers. Take your camera with a macro lens just for fun.

An impressive variety of flora including a Japanese garden and a conservatory with a tropical butterfly collection. Worth the time if you plants and things-green thumb or not.

Heaven in the middle of Cow Town. Great place to walk around, picnic, relax or kids explore. Don't forget the Japanese Gardens, well worth it.

The Bot Garden is well appreciated by Ft. Worth locals. The elevated walkway through a local-species forest is worth the trip. It is a great place to connect with nature, and close to good restaurants.

Beautiful and tranquil setting. Flower gardens are amazing and the paths through the trees make you feel like you are there alone. Would recommend for anyone looking for a place to take pictures.

Beautiful, but bring your walking shoes! They have 2 area's that you must pay to visit. We only visited the free area. Probably spent 2 hours walking. Had I known better, I would have brought a picnic for my family to enjoy.
