The Fort Worth Botanical Gardens has an amazing boardwalk learning trail for children.
It is tucked inside the first Botanical Garden exit (the one closest to 30).
When you see the big log, you are close.
The “log” is actually made of concrete and large enough for a whole group of children to play.
Just beyond the log is the entrance to the boardwalk.
All along the raised trail are learning stations where kids can learn about plants, animals, insects, birds and whether trees poop.
Because the entire trail is high, children can peek through the wire rails at everything below.
Just beyond the boardwalk is a really pretty Lilly pond. I am happy to report that no one ended up in the middle of it on this trip.
We saved the water fun for this action-initiated fountain in one of the prettiest corners of the Botanical Gardens.
Everyone goes home wet, worn out and happy.
The amazing thing is that we have only scratched the surface of things to see at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, but that is all we needed today. We will save the rest for another adventure.
