The Rainforest Conservatory
Please Pardon Our Mess!
The Rainforest Conservatory first opened in September of 1986, led by efforts from The Fort Worth Garden Club. Following hail damage to the glass, the Rainforest Conservatory has been closed since 2016. Efforts to repair the greenhouse have been underway for many months, including replacing much of the glass, installing new handrails, and heavy pruning of overgrown plant material. Though many plants were unfortunately lost or damaged while the greenhouse was closed, the toughest plants survived and are now starting to fill back out. Water features will soon run clear again, and small animals, such as fish, lizards, and frogs, will again flourish. We hope you come back to see the growth and progress in the upcoming months. We appreciate your patience and support while we bring this Rainforest back to life!
Tropical rainforests are among the most biodiverse places on the planet, as they are home to many thousands of species of plants and animals. This 10,000 square foot glass greenhouse contains plants from tropical rainforests all over the world. Not only are some of these plants very beautiful, but they also provide us with useful products, such as food, medicine, and building materials.
