We were so disappointed. After walking many blocks to see the lovely fountains, the building is closed and for sale. Nothing had been posted when I looked to tip us off. When it is running, I'm sure it is beautiful, but that doesn't appear to be anytime soon. The building is empty.

Pretty area with trees and fountains - including a big fountain you can walk through - at the base of the IM Pei-designed building that Dallas (the TV show) fans will recognize as the office of JR Ewing. In the summer this area can feel 10-20 degrees cooler than the sun-baked streets that surround it.

This is directly behind Fairmont and the Starbucks. Very quiet pretty place with numerous different fountains. Definitely take a walk thru. Lots of benches to enjoy a book or your coffee.

The fountains are indeed very nice, specially the one that does the water play as if coordinated with music. Although it is listed as one of the places to visit in Dallas this is NOT a public place therefore visitors and site seekers should be advised that it is PRIVATE PROPERTY and visitors are not really welcomed.

We really enjoyed The Fountain Place! It was so relaxing hearing the water. It has so much to see with the fountains all around the building.

Stayed in the Dallas Fairmont Hotel for six nights. The Fountain Place is right next to the hotel. Had a chance to walk through the fountains in both day time and at night. Beautiful best describes watch you see and enjoy. If in Dallas take the time to visit.

They really do things bigger in Texas. This is an amazing site but be sure to walk down and through all of the fountains. Very pretty but especially spectacular at night.

We visited this place on a Saturday evening. Sadly only the main fountain was in action on one side, and the flowing water on the other. All the other fountains were turned off. One area had been drained & was cordoned off. So we were definitely disappointed we didn't get to see this place in all its glory. The buildings... More

I read about this on Trip Advisor and it wasn't on the top for places for us to visit. We had some extra time so we ran over to look at it. It took us a little bit to find it, but it's so gorgeous. If I lived in Dallas I would love to go there and read constantly. It's... More

From a distance, Fountain Place is a masterpiece. I.M. Pei designed this amazing beuilding to where the outline, or silhouette, is different from every single vantage point. It is, in my opinion, the greatest tower in Dallas' skyline. Reunion usually gets the nod from most, but that's because of novelty and flash, literally. The amazing thing is this cool, sharp,...
