Went to FortWorth to celebrate my 20th wedding anniversary. The water gardens are free, beautiful and easy to get to by the trolley.

My kids liked this stop. We had fun walking the steps down into the waterfall and also enjoyed the quiet water fall area. It's nice but we didn't need much time we spent a total of 20 minutes and that was enough. If I didn't have my kids and the weather was warmer I could see myself reading a book... More

These water gardens are quite impressive. I still cannot quite believe that so many people have died here. (Their stories are on plaques around the water gardens) It is great going down to the bottom and being surrounded by all that water.

Forth Worth Water Gardens. I didn't know what to expect but I was surprised and pleased at what I found. Water Gardens, one had water sprays, very nice area, sitting areas, colorful. You can walk down in the gardens. Take your own snacks. Great area for photography.

This was a nice concrete with water park on the edge of the downtown Ft. Worth. An interesting layout with a couple of small concrete water ponds and several water falls. Frankly, it would probably have been better to visit on a warmer and sunny day. It was an interesting design and concept.

A gorgeous and very zen-like park in the heart of the city, this is far more interesting than your average urban green space. It's sort of peaceful and serene in some spots, but pretty exciting in others. If you're afraid of heights or just the nervous type, be careful on The Mountain (a vertical wall with narrow offsets at each... More

This is a modern day architectural wonder and a must see attractions if you are visiting dfw. Located in the central of the FW downtown and it would be best if you go before getting dark. Just sit and relax with your loved one. Be very careful if you are getting down into the water-f(w)alls because the steps are made... More

If you are looking for very peaceful place to walk around with your significant other or your family then you definitely need to come check out the Fort Worth Water Gardens. Also a great place to take engagement photos and or family photos. Has a romantic ambiance in the evenings.

Very interesting art instillation of huge water features and massive structural elements including a man made canyon surrounded completely by 3 stories of waterfalls. You can go down into the canyon. Probably not the best place to take kids because it's a bit dangerous. Definitely not for the elderly.
