Found this place on here and got really excited to see it. WALKED to it from the museum and all the fountains were off! It was a Sunday afternoon at 4... And very disappointing.

We visited at dusk and thought it was beautiful! The landscaping & greenery was beautiful & the fountains were wonderful! Great atmosphere with some benches to enjoy it & it's free! Can't beat that!

If I'm not mistaken, our tour guide told us that there were 350 fountains at Fountain Place. We visited at dusk and the lights below the fountains were illuminating under the water and trees. There are several places to sit and enjoy the shade (from the hot Texas sun), the sight of the fountains, and the sound of the water.... More

This is a very beautiful place in Dallas, no fee required and a good set of pictures you will be able to take. Easy to get here by rail.

I always enjoy spending a little bit of time at Fountain Place. It was designed to enhance the experience of the surrounding Allied Bank Tower designed by the great architect I.M. Pei. (Also known to locals as "The Lipstick Building.") :-) Whether or not you appreciate details of fine architecture and space designers (Fountains by Dan Kiley), they have engineered... More

After spending the day in the busy city, my family needed a quiet place to end the day and this was the perfect place! Parking was like $2. We enjoyed walking around looking at the water. Plenty of benches to sit on. Wasn't anything too fancy but nice and calm.

My husband & I went here after the Segway tour. It's beautiful to see, hear and to just sit & watch. It's worth a trip at least once, the way they have the fountains set up is great and very pretty!!

Well, my husband proposed here last year, so I maybe a little biased on loving it. All the fountains are really pretty, though! It isn't really very noisy even being close to the road, and it is a little cooler being that you are by water. We were here in July, and it wasn't hot at all! I hate the... More

After spending the whole day at the Dallas aquarium, having parked opposite Fountain place , we went looking for coffee. I am an amateur photographer, I had my D90 DSLR with me. I love the fountains, I took some pics, we sat on a bench and rested our feet. Ready to leave we approached the security guard to find out... More

If you want a place to go to just look at water fountains you might enjoy this site. However, don't even think of putting your hands in the water or you'll be immediately reprimanded. The building is old, and the restaurants are not what they used to be. The prices there and in the on-site store can be out of... More
