The Fort Worth Botanical Garden was established in 1934 and is the oldest major botanic garden in Texas. It’s located in the heart of the cultural district. It contains a collection of more than 2,500 species of plants.
There are nineteen different destinations within the Fort Worth Botanical Garden. The grounds are huge, so we didn’t know what we were getting into when we started our visit. In the Deborah Beggs Moncrief Garden Center, there is an indoor area with many tropical plants and a waterfall.
Then we walked through to the Rose Gardens. There were lots of bees and the sun started bringing on the heat.
There was a stick art exhibit Stickwork by Patrick Dougherty, which was really interesting. They looked like little houses made of twisted sticks and tree trunks. You can see a short video by EC Films on their Instagram account.
My favorite part was feeding the koi and turtles in the pond. You can purchase pellets with your entrance ticket and, boy, they are hungry!
