Find a Calm Respite at Fort Worth Botanic Garden Near Villas of Oak Hill Apartments in Fort Worth

It may be just a few miles shy of downtown Fort Worth and a short drive away from Villas of Oak Hill Apartments, but Fort Worth Botanic Garden feels like its own world. Given that it spans 110 acres of wildlife, that shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

Turtles paddle through streams. Koi swim lazily in ponds. Native birds flit between trees, keeping an eye and ear out for the handful of cats that roam the grounds. The animals keep the garden buzzing with energy even when there isn't an event going on (concerts and family functions are regular occurrences). Meander through its many winding trails in the morning or evening, when the air is cool and comfortable, and avoid the weekends if you'd like to also avoid large crowds. Admission is free unless you want to check out the Japanese Garden, which requires a small fee.
