Picnics at the Garden

Picnic Etiquette

To ensure that the Garden is a serene, hospitable environment for ALL our guests, we respectfully ask that picnic parties follow the guidelines below during their visit:

We ask that you please…

  1. Picnic only in the following areas (View a map of locations here):
  1. Pack out what you pack in.
  2. Dispose of all trash in designated recycle bins and trashcans.
  3. Be mindful of other guests and help keep the Gardens relaxing and peaceful for all.
  4. Do not step into the cultivated garden beds. Our garden beds are for plants, not feet.
  5. Leave tables, large coolers and folding chairs at home. These items damage garden spaces and detract from their serenity.
  6. Only feed our Koi fish the approved fish food available at admission or gift shop.
  7. On-site dining options also available at Rock Springs Cafe.
Please be aware that the following are never allowed:
  • Smoking, tobacco use or e-cigarettes.
  • Outside alcohol.
  • Athletic equipment (bikes, scooters, skateboards, sleds, frisbees, and yard games).
  • Grills, outdoor cooking equipment, and/or campfires.

School groups, please call (817) 463-4135 to request approval to picnic in the Grove. All groups are asked to leave the area as they found it.
