Botanical Gardens at Heritage Park, Grapevine

Grapevine has so many attractions such as Great Wolf Lodge, Legoland, the vineyards and Lake Grapevine that it’s easy to forget about some of the fun and free activities the city boast!  A very progressive city when it comes to outdoor activities, the city has some of the best parks and playgrounds in the Metroplex, as well as bike and hiking trails!  The Botanical Gardens at Heritage Park offer a quiet escape from the noise and traffic of the nearby highways, and is a place filled with natural beauty!

Know Before You Go 

The Gardens are FREE, and so is parking.

Pack your picnic for a great lunch in the park.

Koi Pond

Bring something to feed the fish, but instead of bread, grab a small bag of koi food at your local pet store.  It’s much more nutritious, and remember to not overfeed them, which leads to mucking up the waters!

Seasons

The Gardens are full of color in each of the different seasons!  We visited in February, and loved all the white bulbs blooming in the beds!

Things To Do in Grapevine

Play

Nash Farm is another fun, free place to explore, right down the road.  Click HERE to read more.

Eat

Explore Historic Downtown Grapevine’s many restaurants and shops! We love Esparzas, on the patio under the big tree and twinkling lights!  Click HERE to read more.

Stay

The Vineyards Campground on Lake Grapevine has great cabins, just a little too close to the already swollen lake.  The Vineyards are closed until the water receeds.  Click HERE to visit their website.

You can’t beat Great Wolf Lodge for fun!  Kids love not only the waterpark, but storytime, Magiquest, Northern Lights Arcade or the new Howlers Peak Ropes Course!  Click HERE to read more.
