Fort Worth Botanic Garden

Fort Worth Botanic Garden

Gorgeous does not begin to describe this Texan beauty. The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is one of the biggest attractions in the Lone Star State; spread over 110 acres and standing only 3½ miles west of downtown Fort Worth.

Great for family outings or friends looking to spend time together in a serene environment, there is something for everyone at the Garden. As far as outdoor weddings go, this is one of the best award-winning hotspots for couples looking to say ‘I Do’. You have multiple flexible options, from catering to affordable wedding packages, so take your time and enjoy your freedom to plan your special day at Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

Families have several activities here. Sensory garden encounters for tiny tots include digging, watering, and other diverse learning activities. Enjoy the Backyard Vegetable Garden where a trained educator teaches you things you probably never knew before (check listings for program availability).

A walkabout is always on schedule, making it a great option for families to bond with Nature. A 995-foot Texas Native Forest Boardwalk links the Garden’s North and South regions. With detailed story panels and thirteen eco-education stations, learning and fun just met on the boardwalk.

The importance of a green future, and how the method of composting can help, is taught at the Compost Outpost; now you can make a difference. Anyone and everyone can take photographs at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, making it an outstanding locale for photographers looking to capture natural landscapes and other elements (read the guidelines and fee-requirements for wedding photos).

Healthy catering services are hard to find but here in the Garden you have a list of pre-approved vendors serving delicious bites for weddings or other needs, even for hungry Garden visitors. Concerts and easy ticket purchase options are also happening in the Garden; check listings and stay updated.

Check out the vast variety of garden types in here, from Fuller, Perennial, Fragrance and Japanese to Oval Rose and Lower Rose gardens. Appreciate the Conservatory (10,000 square feet) and the Water Conservation Garden.
