Fort Worth Botanical Garden is a lush ornamental garden where all walks of life can peacefully connect with nature while learning about plant life. This garden was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
The firm worked with the Fort Worth Garden Club to design improvements for the Phase I portion which included replacement of the exposed aggregate paving, the design of replacement trellises, rusticated retaining walls along the 240’ long colonnade and the reconstruction of the center shelter at the Lower Rose Garden.
Included in the shelter improvements are a weather vane with the Botanic Garden logo and an integral sprinkler to keep the roof hydrated as a fire prevention measure for the fi reworks display during Concerts in the Garden, a popular month-long summer music series. The Ipe wood materials were carefully selected to complement the existing stone structures and for keeping with the architectural heritage of the garden as well as for long term durability.
Bennett Partners also worked on phase II of the project which included a restoration of the historic Upper Rose Garden shelter, retaining walls, paving and renovation of the fountains at the cascade.
