Celebrate the Garden’s 90th Birthday and See How We’ve Grown!

Back in 1934, visionary residents of Fort Worth came together to establish a garden within the city. Today, we are the grateful inheritors of the 120-acres of green oasis that is the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

We invite you to celebrate with us! Many of you grew up visiting the Garden for holidays and family celebrations. Maybe you studied in the Japanese Garden as a college student; maybe you were married in the Rose Garden. We would love to hear your stories and see your photos! Email us at and our marketing team will connect with you to share your images on social media.

We also invite you to be part of the Garden’s future with a financial donation. Now is a great time to give: the first $100,000 raised will be matched dollar for dollar by a kind benefactor.

Thank you for your support of the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.
