This is an attraction that is interesting to see. It is lovely to be in the middle of the downtown area, that when you get into the waterfall you can drown out all the city noise. Take your time walking down into the falls and enjoy the change of the water sound as you move lower. The kids love this... More

The Fort Worth Water Gardens is a beautiful example of simplicity in design, harmony in achieved effect on the senses, & a generally quiet, safe place to meditate alone or with others. Public art should fulfill both function & form, & the Water Gardens achieves both with easy access, convenient location to the Convention Center & local hotels, & variation... More

What a lovely park! This is a very peaceful place to come and relax and enjoy nature, meditate, read or whatever pleases.The waterfalls and pools are so well done. We were glad to have gotten to see it. It is right behind the convention center, so easy access for those who need a break!

Sometimes public art, as we recently encountered in the small town of Vicksburg, Mississippi with their waterfront murals. The Ft. Worth water gardens was a very ambitious (and no doubt costly) attempt at combining impressive public art and a downtown setting. The idea was a noble one, but the result is an awkward park that simply doesn't impress, provide a... More

What a pleasant surprise to find! I was staying at the Sheraton for meetings at the Omni. This meant I had to walk through the Water Gardens... What an incredibly beautiful display of water and art in the middle of the city!

The water gardens were stunning and we enjoyed a cooler day with few other people around. Be aware that the gardens are not stroller/wheelchair friendly.

On a recent day-trip through Ft Worth, my hubby recommended a cool water fountain that he had heard of - after searching google maps, we realized it was this water garden. How very cool and unique. Since it was a foggy, drizzly, 50 degree March day, there were only two other families here with us. The three water areas to... More
