Do flowers still bloom if no one is around to see them?
Just because the Fort Worth Botanical Garden is currently closed doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a stroll through the grounds.
Touring the FTW Botanical Gardens doesn’t require a plan . . . strolling, gazing, sniffing the flowers . . . are all perfect ways to spend an afternoon. But for overachievers, here’s a map to ‘plot’ out a strategy for your next in-person visit.
There’s loads of shade, but this is Texas, fellow visitors. Keep in mind: afternoon heat, intensely-bright sun, and a fair level of humidity.
- Wear sunblock.
- Hats–especially light-weight or loosely-woven–are always a good idea.
- Water bottles are permitted (except in certain canteens or restaurants on the garden grounds).
- Picnics are fine on the open area lawns. GARDEN ETIQUETTE
- Personal or casual photos are permitted, even encouraged, but professionals need to obtain permits at time of admission. PHOTO RULES
- Always practice LNT (Leave No Trace).
- Read – and heed – the signs. There are loads of botanical explanations & FUN facts located throughout the gardens. There are cautionary signs, as well. Leave the rocks–ALONE–in the Japanese Gardens. Please Don’t Pick Their Daisies . . . or any other flowers, buds, or blooms for that matter. Don’t stray off the walking paths. (Tender vegetation is always under cultivation at the gardens. Don’t walk on their buds.)
