There are several different "gardens" built by the same architect. Each one has an explanation of the premises behind its build, which is very interesting. The layout means each garden has its own space so each can be enjoyed individually, from the tranquil sunken pool to the loud waterfalls. Really glad I finally got to visit this part of Fort... More

This won't be your only stop in Fort Worth, but it should be one of them. We found it easily in middle of the day. Almost didn't see there were 3 different water features so don't just stop at the main one, be sure to walk around.

This was a nice area just south of the convention center, one of the pools was being serviced while we were there, but it was still nice. The active pool was the nicest with the sound of the rushing water blocking out the city noises. Nearby on street metered parking was only 50 cents for an hour, a real bargain!... More

This is a unique spot that is free, and it is worth checking out. The fountains are beautiful, and the whole place has a tranquil feel. There is street parking available that has a meter. It is a fun place to picnic or read a book. Who would expect to find tranquility in the midst of a concrete jungle?!?

The Fort Worth Water Gardens are super unique. My only bit of advice is go during the day before the sun sets. It has beautiful waterfalls and is not typically crowded.

There are few places you can find that match the unique qualities you'll find at the Ft. Worth Water Gardens. It's quiet even when full of people; it's cool even on a warm summers day. The sound of the water is calming and relaxing. It's the location where the movie "Logan's Run" ending was filmed. It's the location where my... More

Water Gardens...Big deal right? Well we were surprised! It was a very unique place with not just one water garden but several. Very relaxing and a really neat place to visit in the heart of downtown.
