We went here after our visit to Glenrose. The water garden is marvellous. Very beautifully designed architecture. There are 3 different types of pools - the quiet pool, the aerated pool and the main pool. The main water garden is awesome. Though I was scared to climb down the steps at first because of the moving water , my son... More

Beautiful gem in the city. Very pretty and calm. As well as cooling. We were there on a early Saturday afternoon. Nice crowd of people but still calming and relaxing. There is an area for sitting on blankets and such. Really enjoyed it as did my nephew.

Loved it! The gardens were an unexpected pleasure in an otherwise dull city. They are lovely place to relax and cool down - you can't get in the water but stand close enough and the spray will hit you!

Beautiful relaxing place. Amazing concept. A piece of Eden in the middle of downtown Ft Worth. Wander around and enjoy the trees and terraced water.

I walked through the water gardens 25+ years ago and have wanted to go back every time we're in Fort Worth. The gardens were as remembered...very pretty and well maintained. However, the "Mountain" fountain was not in service on the day we visited (water was drained) and we only got to see three of the four fountains. I would recommend... More

We visited the gardens early on a weekend morning. All of the water features are unique and each one is designed to give you an experience different from the others. My favorite was the "quiet pool," which really did give me the impression that I was Alice in Wonderland. It's amazing how your perspective changes relative to the dimensions of... More

Not sure how 7 people could rate this place as poor as it's a great way to relax at the end of the day... It's a city park, not an amusement park.... As other have stated, 3 quite different pools to sit and relax at and recharge your batteries. A 4th exhibit is called Mountain that many kids were climbing... More
