FW city council has decided to start charging $12 per person to visit the gardens in 2019. Ridiculous! It’s a nice place to catch your breathe, have a family picnic, take photos, etc. but NOTHING in these parks is worth $12 per person per visit....More

I love botanic gardens and especially Asian gardens. The Japanese Garden here was beautiful and very enjoyable to walk through. Happily, we had free admission with our AHS membership. We did not see much else beyond that and realize that late November wasn’t a great...More

Not sure if the free admission is changing, but could see this being worthwhile for up to $10 per car parking fee. Lots to see. Such a tranquil place with a variety to see. A hidden gem for sure!

We love walking through the gardens. This place is great for picnics. And they have a fun kids area. In the summer they offer concerts.

The garden is in a large area with nice pathways through the park. It's is fall so the falling leaves and light breeze made the morning very pleasant. The garden is free to visitors, but there is a Japanese garden that does charge for admittance.

I've been to the botanic garden twice. It's so lovely. It is close to the downtown and very close to TCU.

It is very pretty & well taken care of. We went in October so there wasn’t much in bloom but it must be beautiful when it is. The landscaping was very well done & there were little waterfalls cascading over the rocks.

Hello, thank you for your question, we have bike racks located at the Garden Center, due to our narrow paths and fragile foliage we ask that you do not bike though the Garden.
