  • Well, I was just there for orientation very briefly, I'm at West Jeanette supervisor of maintenance. My brief experience with her; great attitude seems to be really spunky in the morning.. her crew seems to really relate to her she interacts well with them.. like I said my experience was brief but I'm going back, the initial lives that I've got was that they enjoy working with her. Can't wait to go back
  • This is a truly beautiful and peaceful garden. It's ideal for picnics, leisure walks, exploring and learning. It's Free and there is a variety of pleasant sitting areas to quietly read a book while you embrace the fragrance from the exquisite blooms. Perhaps a family day including a picnic and exploring the different forest species that will truly amaze you. If you are ready to enjoy the beauty of a delightful exotic yet serene experience feel free to visit the reception desk for your admission ticket to the Japanese tea garden. There you will enjoy relaxing sounds of streams and smell the beautiful spring flowers in bloom. I will always recommended this Fort Worth attraction to visitors and frequently visit myself. Thanks for providing such a happy place.
