The Fort Worth

Japanese Garden Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

F

Fort Worth celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Fort Worth Japanese Garden at this year’s Fall Festival, November 1 and 2. It has been an eventful 40 years. The land for the Japanese Garden was purchased in 1963. Ten years of planning, clearing, and construction was completed before the Garden was opened for visitors on March 29, 1973. Kingsley Wu, professor of environmental living at Texas Women’s University prepared the final specifications for the Japanese Garden. Soon, trucks and crews began to haul the remains of two wars, a cavalry unit, trash, and more away to the

city dump. By 1970 the ponds were completed. A waterfall, spillway, and island were fashioned in and then the pools. From 1970-1973 the meditation garden, the teahouse complex (Pavilion and teahouse), moon deck, and pagoda were constructed. Park and Recreation Department personnel performed all labor. The Japanese Garden opened for the public to enjoy on March 29, 1973. In 1976, an impressive Main Entrance Gate designed by Albert Komatsu was added. Mr. Komatsu is responsible for most of the shrine-like structures in the garden.

The Treasure Tree Gift Shop designed by Jim Bradsford was added in 1985. It features books, educational toys, Bonsai, Japanese and garden themed gifts and Texas friendly hospitality to its customers. The Japanese Garden is a growing tribute to the many individuals, clubs, collective organizations and foundations that contributed toward its construction, development and management. Features this Fall include the Fall Plant Sale in the Grove near the Japanese Garden on October 12, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Exceptional specimens of trees, shrubs, perennials, and the treasured citrus trees and Japanese maples the Garden is known for will be offered. The Fall Festival is scheduled for November 2 and 3 following the 40th Anniversary Gala on November 1. Saturday, November 2, the Festival begins with the welcoming drumbeat of

the Tiako Drummers, and will continue with Sakura Dancers, martial arts demonstrations, Japanese art, and food. Japanese paper lanterns and billowing fish kites will be part of the decor for the festival. The oldest event enjoyed in the Garden is The Birds Christmas Tree, scheduled for Saturday, December 4 at 9 a.m. in the Grove. Scouts and Campfire Kids bring food for the Birds for this event. Strings of cereal, seed balls, and peanut butter covered with seeds all hang from the limbs of the trees.

West is Among the Best for Culture and Shopping-and-Dining Delights

A

by Michael H. Price

As long as we’re “out where the West begins,” as an iconic figure in Fort Worth’s history described this Cowtown, then we might as well look even further westward within the city itself. Pioneering publisher and civic booster Amon Carter may have intended to give Dallas the razz when he coined that phrase — but the West hardly could have picked a keener starting point than Fort Worth. And Fort Worth, in turn, hardly could have picked a site more right for its burgeoning west side Cultural District. Rippling with heavyduty commercial, artistic and residential growth since the dawn of the 21st century, the west side overall has seen its very skyline change with the transformation of a busy West Seventh Street into a streamlined conduit connecting the downtown area’s Sundance Square development with the Cultural District. Heading west (naturally) from downtown Fort Worth, one finds the Cultural District radiating from the intersection where Seventh Street crosses University Drive and, in the process, morphs into the historic, brick-paved Camp Bowie Boulevard. Visitors in search of western-style discoveries — from plain-and-fancy dining to fine art and varied entertainment — will find such delights in volume on the west side. Cultural attractions, restaurants, mainstream and specialinterest shopping, and lavish natural gardens flourish as a reminder of how Fort Worth has built upon its frontier origins. Several of the world’s finer museums, playhouses and galleries anchor a vast Cultural District. The hand-laid red-brick pavement of Camp Bowie Boulevard is an attraction in itself, lined with an everexpanding array of art galleries, stage-and-screen auditoriums, boutiques, scholarly museums, restaurants and lounges, and shopping malls. The Cultural District The Fort Worth Museum of Science & History, commands the westward view of the district from Montgomery Street and just 6

northward are additional cultural touchstones: An expanded and redesigned Amon Carter Museum of American Art, houses a definitive collection of American paintings, photography, and sculpture, from essential historic works by Charles M. Russell and Frederick Remington to a new acquisition of last-century Native American photography by Edward S. Curtis. Close by is the Kimbell Art Museum, itself preparing for an expansion and still living up to Newsweek’s description as “arguably the most beautiful museum in America.” The neighboring Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest such museum in Texas — housed in a work-of-art 2002 building designed by world-renowned Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, and featuring bold gallery exhibitions, concert attractions and, every weekend, leading-edge independent-studio films. The Museum of Science & History, anchoring a campus within the Cultural District, has been designed by similarly renowned architects Ricardo and Victor Legorreta. Inside the Museum of Science & History, one finds vast galleries of Texas-bred dinosaur specimens and the state’s oil-and-gas heritage, in addition to the Cattle Raisers Museum, the Fort Worth Children’s Museum, Stars Café, and a new digital Noble Planetarium . The Omni Theater, an IMAX® superscreen dome, links with the Museum of Science & History and boasts a new digital sound system and enhanced lighting. The National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame is next door to the FMS&H. The NCM&HF honors women of the American West from those who have lived and worked on ranches or who led an expedition, or sat before an easel, aimed a rifle and hit the bull’s eye, or sat on the Supreme Court. When the museum meanderings trigger an appetite for fine dining, two long-established, museum-based cafés stand ready to serve. The Kimbell Buffet Restaurant offers indoor or patio lunch and a light evening

The Modern’s full-service kitchen delivers superb cuisine for lunch, Sunday brunch, and scheduled seasonal dinners. The Great Outdoors offers breakfast subs, lunch and dinner subs, soups, salads and all natural ice cream. Off University on White Settlement Road, a Texas barbecue tradition reigns at Angelo’s, offering a half-century of first-class BBQ and ultra-chilled beer. The Fort Worth Community Art Center, at the district’s western edge, showcases work by the city’s homegrown community of artists, in addition to live-theater venues. Neighboring the museum community is the city’s landmark Will Rogers Memorial Center, a versatile 85-acre entertainment complex — with 45 acres housing the Will Rogers Coliseum & Auditorium. Its majestic Pioneer Tower dates from the Texas Centennial Celebration of 1936. Still the most imposing

site within the district, the coliseum holds pride of place as the first domed structure of its kind in the world. The complex also boasts an equestrian center and exhibit halls, home to the annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Showplaces of Heritage and Artistry and Nature Shoppers can find a broad selection of merchandise in the Cultural District’s specialty shops. European antiques and upholstery can be found at Domain XCIV and the dh collection boasts progressive furniture designs in an appetite-whetting environment. Southward off University Drive, visitors can experience the glories of nature at Trinity Park, a pristine oasis bordered by a fork of the placid Trinity River. Here, picnickers, joggers, and strollers can explore meandering pathways or travel on a miniature railroad. Opposite the park, across University Drive, Fort Worth’s Botanic Garden beckons — the oldest such site in Texas, a lush 109-acre tapestry of dappled shade accented by vibrant splashes of color. The Garden is home to thousands of species of native and exotic plants in 21 specialty gardens. The European-designed Rose Garden features more than 3,400 roses, and the 10,000-square-foot Conservatory houses tropical flowers and foliage from around the world. An on-site Gardens Restaurant serves light lunches and refreshments — with a view of the Garden and a varied gallery that often displays the work of local artists. A short distance southward lies the illustrious Fort Worth Zoo, nationally ranked among the finest. The Zoo is home to thousands of animals, both native and exotic. Viewing facilities and natural habitat exhibits are set up for optimal views of the animals, often separated from their observers by only a river, a waterfall, or a large window. Shaded rest spots and picnic tables are available, with several on-site eateries. Across from the Zoo, Log Cabin Village offers another view of the city’s rich frontier history boasting seven authentic log homes, dating from the mid-to-late 1800s. Perioddressed interpreters greet visitors inside each cabin offering a living history of the home and its origin. The mood to explore might be triggered by art, dining, shopping, or the wonders of nature. Fort Worth’s west side meets all these interests and then some!
