Botanic Gardens at Heritage Park in Grapevine

Secluded enough for intimate events, picturesque enough to be memorable. My man and I came across this botanical garden unexpectedly–and what a pleasant surprise it was. However, much of the botanical side of the park is still undergoing development, so it will be interesting to see how these gardens mature.

Of special interest here are the selections of native plants as well as the water features and koi ponds. Off the beaten path, you can check out the historic tree and its marker certifying its age just under 200 years old. This garden sits adjacent to Heritage Park and is very family-friendly. After a stroll through the gardens, take the kids over to the play area for some fun time.

On our current visit, many families had descended upon the gardens to take advantage of the spring color show. They had come to photograph their prom-dressed teens against the beautiful backdrop. The gardens also has several spaces to host outdoor parties or weddings, if you’re planning for a small celebration.
