Fort Worth Public Library locations offer passes for free Botanic Garden admission
The Fort Worth Public Library will offer passes to allow library users to visit the Fort Worth Botanic Garden at no charge after the new garden fee system is enacted on July 19.
The passes may be checked out from a library to provide one week of free admission for two adults with children who are 17 or younger and all reside in the same household.
Passes are not valid at special events or for educational programs at the Botanic Garden. Library users may also check out a digital pass on their mobile device if they use Overdrive’s Libby app with their library card number.
Additionally, passes must be checked out and returned to the same library, and should not be placed in the book drop. Pass users must present the due-date slip as well as the pass at the Botanic Garden.
More about the fees
The City of Fort Worth is implementing the fees to fund needed maintenance and improvements at the garden. Entrance fees will be $12 per adult and $10 for senior citizens; $6 for children ages 6-15; and children under 6 will be free. The admission fees grant access to all areas of the garden, including the Japanese Garden, which has had a separate entrance fee in the past.
