The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is well known for its Japanese Garden, 7.5 acres filled with cherry trees, Japanese maples, magnolias, bamboo, bridges and ponds filled with koi fish. The Japanese Garden is recognized in both spring and fall with a Japanese Festival, which celebrates Japanese art and culture along with the spectacular garden. This year’s spring festival will be held April 20-21.
