A Legacy Rooted in History
The Fort Worth Botanic Garden was established in December 1934 when the city’s board of park commissioners renamed a 37.5-acre area known as Rock Springs Park. Spring-fed pools, cascading waterfalls, and a newly constructed Rose Garden were the seeds of what would become one of Fort Worth’s most cherished attractions. Check out the timeline link below for many of the Garden’s milestones through the years.
