Fort Worth Botanic Garden, Fort Worth Reviews
My husband, 2 year old daughter and I really loved this place! I am visiting for my first time but my husband used to live in Fort Worth. We were visiting his family before he leaves for his deployment and was recommended this place by my mother in law. My daughter is obsessed with flowers and plants so we figured we would go and check it out. If you are looking for something fun and free, this place is a really good find! If you love flowers, plants and beautiful settings, this is good place to go. Thank you for the staff for making this an easy and enjoyable experience.
I go here for multiple reasons. The scenery is beautiful for one. It makes for a great place to walk alone or in groups. I usually bring my kids here and they absolutely love it. There's trails so you don't get lost and even a restaurant if you want to have a nice meal out. It's also great for Pokemon go players. There's stops everywhere and a few gyms. Makes the walks more entertaining. Also a great place to meet new people.
The only mistake I made was going in the afternoon in the summer (I know, I know). There are so many amazing views (and fish and turtles). Next time I will arrive near dusk or early morning. I'm bringing something to drink OR trying the restaurant as an intermission. I also want to see the areas that require a fee. Next time! Make sure to dress comfortably. I've even seen people on blankets having a great time in the shade. Jealous :)
Beautiful place! Well maintained and worth the extra price to get in. Very peaceful of course, you can also feed the fish while you’re around. Go on a nice day that’s not to hot and it’ll be worth it. You can also take tons of photos and do private event photos out there as well. Go check it out, you won’t be disappointed. This place is also very kid friendly with activity’s along the way.
This place is so refreshing and green!! It was free, easy to find parking, and just offered a really quiet and relaxing place to go to marvel at nature! The garden was very clean and so well kept, and I was impressed by how large it was. I did not visit the japanese garden, but I plan to! There were a lot of friendly bumble bees and such pretty flowers! There's also poison ivy (clearly labeled), so be careful!
