This has always been one of the most moving, impressive places ever. It was included in the movie "Logan's Run" as the super-modern escape. It was designed by Phillip Johnson and flows for about four city blocks. The pool isn't the only thing to see - there's a splash pool, waterfall walls, lighted views and seating for events or just...

Pack a simple lunch and picnic here. Watch the movie "Blade Runner" before you go if you can find it. The place is fun for the all of the kids to run around and climb. The ladies sit in the shade and chat. Couples stroll. It is a beautiful feature in the city, and we like to visit whenever we're... More

Right smack in the middle of downtown Fort Worth is something very unexpected and delightful. You won't see it driving by as you make your way to the convention center. This special gem is hidden and only those who venture out of their car will be rewarded with what it offers. Park and walk down (yes down) the long wide... More

Possibly one of Cow Town's best kept secrets? It is difficult to imagine that any major city would set aside this much space, then (seemingly) keep quiet about it. Glorious water features, peaceful (except for the deepest levels of the main waterfall section). Note, probably not the place to take really small children unless you keep them on a tight... More

located just outside the ft worth convention center, it was nice to take a break from the insanity just for a few minutes and probably saved my sanity for the remainder of the weekend.

This is a good spot to hangout, enjoy the cool water features and catch some sun. You can pick up lunch and spend an afternoon relaxing here. Its quite peaceful. Its not a real busy spot either. A very underrated place to visit.

My husband and I stopped here before leaving Fort Worth back in March. Believe me when I say that it is worth the time to stop in. The three main water areas are very different but so amazing. It's an unexpected but cool place. My recommendation/warning is that when you're in the mountain area the vertigo as you walk down... More

My Step Son took my wife and I there while we were visiting this last week. This was a very good place to see. I loved the water areas and when I saw that I could walk down into one of the exhibits, WOW.

FREE and BEAUTIFUL! My family visited here after finding it on the free things to do listing on the Ft. Worth website. It was well worth the visit. Bring a camera and capture some cool photos.

We stopped here on our way to the stockyards. Great place to stretch your legs. There are three different water areas and one "mountain" that is basically steps. The pictures already provided give a great view. My favorite was the main pool. This has steps that are almost floating. Be careful when walking down. The running water under the step... More
