We went around sunset on Valentines Day and it was very crowded. Find a time when its not as full and it's a great time. Very cool to see. Not the best to take small children. Its not super safe for them.

Next to the convention center, nice park area. The steps down the water feature can be a little dizzying. While we were visiting, there was a group of guys doing parkour. It was VERY cool to watch.

This brilliant park is one of Johnson's best urban pieces. It has held up remarkably well. The directions of the water flow are cleverly done keeping the viewer's interests. Also, Logan's Run was shot here! Also, as you climb the steps in one of the water fountains, you contemplate the possibility of slipping and suing someone. It is a remarkable... More

The sound of rush water is so relaxing! There were families exploring, people sitting and eating lunch. We enjoyed all the different water falls. A really fun place!

The Park is showing it's age, but still very impressive. You don't just look at the water features, you actually enter them. It is impressive to descend down a staircase, surrounded within a waterfall on all sides. Plenty of seating for a picnic lunch.

The Fort Worth Water Gardens sit on the edge of downtown Fort Worth very near the convention center. Designed by Phillip Johnson, it is an unusual collection of water features to be walked by and, in the case of the active pool, across. Parents should be very careful with small children near the active pool.

Had a weekend getaway in Fort Worth for our 27th anniversary, and we visited the Fort Worth Water Gardens. This was a very enjoyable place, quiet, relaxing and peaceful. I think we spent close to 2 hours there, just walking around, sitting, watching the pools, people and flow of the water. Bring a camera, some opportunity to take some beautiful... More

This attraction is just a must see and must experience in Fort Worth. There is something about this place that you have never encountered before, beautiful, unique, serene and exciting all at once. It's free!! Quite easy to find the location and street parking.

I recommend checking out The Water Gardens because of how unique it really is. It consists of three VERY different pools (I refer to them as pools but they’re not really pools) and a hill to overlook them all. The entrance to the water gardens has a beautiful sign with a small waterfall that pools down around the sign. The... More

The water gardens were very impressive. There were multiple fountains to take in. Climb to the top of the “Mountain” for a great view of the gardens. During the summer this would be a must stop to relax and enjoy the area.
