I've gone to these particular Japanese Gardens on and off whenever I'm in town. I have to say they are, by far, my favorite in the US. The are located within the Botanical Gardens, which are free and lovely as well. There is a fee for the Japanese Gardens, but IMHO it is worth it. Spend the day if you wish. Bring water and something to eat with as there is nothing to purchase within the Gardens themselves. If you wish to feed the koi you will also need quarters to get koi food from the machines. There is a Zen Garden if you like. I prefer to languish on a bench and watch the koi and turtles. It can get crowded on the weekends, I prefer to go during the week. It is beautiful year round.

My friend and I had intentions to go to both the Botanical Gardens and the Japenese Gardens. It was fairly easy to find, and had lots of parking. We went to the Japense first and I actually prefer it. However we did go in the winter when not many things were in bloom, but the Japenese Gardens were still beautiful. Lots of places to walk around and sit. I bet its even more beautiful in the spring Even the gift store had some neat things to buy it. I want to come back in the spring for sure.

Why is it that when I lived in Texas that I never came here? I used to work in Fort Worth and where I worked was not that far from there. Well, no matter, I finally got here and I was glad that I did. It was told to me by a buddy that I used to work with the the Japanese Gardens were having a festival and a special weekend going on, so since I was down here visiting my daughter, I thought this would be a fun thing to do. First off, the place is beautiful. It wasn't too expensive to get in and I even got my daughter a Year of the Ram shirt. There were lots of kid friendly activities going on inside, including making origami animals and creating a fish print. Obviously, there were plenty of large koi fish to feed and plenty of bamboo around so a certain kiddo could pretend she was a panda. There were also martial arts demonstrations and some drumming (which we didn't get to see) and even a tea ceremony was going on as we left. It's a cool and tranquil experience. We enjoyed it very much and would go back.

A stunning, 110-acre garden with over 2,500 different species of native and exotic plants located within Fort Worth’s cultural district. With over 22 Gardens including the Rose Garden, the Fuller Garden and the Japanese Garden.

The Japanese Garden is very pretty. Its clean, well taken care of, and a great way to spend a couple hours. It is part of the Botanical Gardens, offers free parking, and is open everyday 9-5. The entrance fee is low and well worth it. I went on Easter Sunday, and there were several families having fun, enjoying the day, and feeding the fish. This is a great spot for photography and for a wedding as well.
