Nature, like athletes and waiters serving flaming saganaki, always performs its best when on display for others. Witness a natural spectacle with today's Groupon to Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Admission to the Japanese Garden is free for children under 4 years old. Choose between the following options:
• For $5, you get two admission tickets to the Japanese Garden (up to a $9 value).
• For $13, you get five admission tickets to the Japanese Garden (up to a $22.50 value).
Winding paths and arched wooden bridges tiptoe around 7 acres of koi ponds, pagodas, and lush foliage at Fort Worth Botanic Garden's Japanese Garden. Admire tranquil views and meditate on why there wasn't a fifth Beatle as you recline on a gently sloping riverbank where colorful Japanese maples arch gracefully toward the water. Then, sprinkle food pellets to tempt glimmering koi fish to the surface, or cross a wooden bridge to follow serpentine pathways through the rest of the park, passing stone structures and bevies of bearded Monet imitators. With today's deal, Groupon customers can procure two tickets to take a friend on a contemplative first date, or opt for a fivesome to celebrate the occurrence of a fifth weekend in July.
Fort Worth Botanic Garden
Blanketing more than 100 acres, Fort Worth Botanic Garden houses several disparate gardens that welcome locals and tourists whether they want quiet reflection or a social stroll amid arboreal beauty. The Fragrance Garden lives up to its name by engaging olfactory zones with a dozen uniquely scented plants. In the 7-acre Japanese Garden, visitors commune with plants and animals, including the pond's koi fish and their pet minnows.
Allow a couple of hours here, though it would be all too easy to while away an entire afternoon.Frommer's
My 4 yr old boy loved feeding the Koi fish (a lot of them and they're all giants :-) ) and had great time taking pictures of the place.VL, WhatVLThinks, 5/22/11
