The Fort Worth Water Gardens were quite a surprise I have never seen anything like it. I started to walk down to the bottom and chickened out. Which is pretty silly since, there were parents with children walking down them I found it very relaxing and just an amazing attraction. We still have a few days left on our visit... More

My son and I visited this during a hot Sunday and it was fantastic. They don't want you to wade in the water, but most people do--we did. The architecture and fountains were really interesting to even sit beside and enjoy, and you can climb down into the feature without wading, too.

I wasn't expecting much and boy was I wrong! This is a wonderful, peaceful, and free place to visit. Next time I will pack a lunch and relax.

we went at night. The fountains were gorgeous. However, the aerated pool needs night lighting. This was a very nice place to sit and observe the fountains for awhile. Architecturally very unique.

This is a nice attraction for a lunch, but not the best place to plan an afternoon. Redesigned several years back to be safer (still very important to watch young children), you can sit and have a picnic with a nice backdrop and all within walking distance of either the Fort Worth Convention Center or Fort Worth Main Street.

This site is a beautiful place to enjoy a soothing hour or two. It is free to get into and you may walk around as you please. There are many beautiful artistic fountains, creating a gentle atmosphere. Shade is plentiful and there is metered parking throughout the blocks around it. You should plan for at least an hour of relaxation... More

We took up this place on a visit through Fort Worth. I must say that I was impressed with all the fountains and structures contained in this place. It was a nice tranquil spot to just sit back and enjoy the sounds of the waters that flowed. If traveling through the DFW area, visit the water gardens. It will be... More

On a hot day in downtown Ft. Worth this is a great place to slowly take in the beautiful park. There are numerous fountains that the kids loved "finding" and exploring!!

I was surprised it was next door to the downtown convention center. It's a lovely place for a walk around the waterfalls & trees in an urban setting.

My wife and I went here based on TA reviews. What a great place! It was not a terribly hot day, but it was still refreshing to be close to the different pools (especially the active pool). I would recommend going down into the middle of the active pool on the steps. These gardens are like an oasis in the... More
