This North Texas Spot Has Whimsical Hidden Rose Gardens You Can Visit For Free
Stop and smell the roses.
Any flower garden is almost always breathtakingly beautiful but they are so much better when they make you feel like you're in another world. The Rose Gardens of Farmers Branch are made up of six different huge gardens that are just out of this world. The best part? Admission to the garden is totally free!
While it is primarily a rose garden, there is also a bird sanctuary and a butterfly garden to make things even more magical. You can start your garden walk anywhere, though the website recommends starting at Gussie Field Watterworth Park. The garden has 500 different types of roses including hybrids and older breeds of roses.
There are tons of beautiful hidden bridges and walkways for guests to explore and discover. The regular walking trail itself is pretty long and has the most gorgeous sights. You are more than welcome to have a picnic in the gardens as long as you don't bring glass and you clean up when leaving. If you're looking for a perfect place to host a party, the garden is available for rentals year round.
The Rose Garden is open every day of the week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Guests can also find the local rosarian at the garden in case you have questions about landscaping for growing roses of your own. There is free parking on the premises but you can also DART Green Line to get to the garden.
