When guests wander the quiet paths of the Japanese Garden, it’s not unusual for them to stop at the top of the Moon Bridge and say, “I wish I had a place like this at home.” That might seem impossible–the Japanese Garden is the result of 50 years of hard work by dedicated horticulturists. But Nick Esthus, Japanese Garden horticultural manager, says Japanese gardening is within the reach of anyone ready to embrace it.
It was 1973. “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” and “Killing Me Softly with His Song” played on the radio, “The Exorcist” terrified theater audiences and the Japanese Garden opened its doors. Join us Nov. 4 and 5 for a special Fall Japanese Festival to celebrate one of Fort Worth’s most beloved places.
The cool days of October have finally arrived, ushering in one of the best times of the year to visit the Garden.
Seeking calm and beauty? We invite you to unplug and unwind with a peaceful walk through the Rose Garden or ;a moment of contemplation in the Japanese Garden. The Garden’s 110 acres provide plenty of room to withdraw from the world for a while and take a deep breath in nature.
