this is something that you need to see when you are in Fort Worth. It was just beautiful. It is nice clean and relaxing for the people that work or go to school around the area. Makes you feel in are in Hawaii under a waterfall.

To get away from the heat and hard pavements of Fort Worth take a stroll down past the convention center and visit the Water Gardens, the whole area is a man made concrete architectural Garden allowing for a still quiet pool set below the level of the street so no noise disturbs the peace as you sit and contemplate From...

If you visit Fort Worth, make time to go to the Water Gardens and re-enact the final scenes of Logan's Run. Last visit, there were a bunch of teens doing parkour on the back lawn, which was surreal. They also host yoga and other get-togethers in that area. There's something surreal about this place that beckons people to it. As... More

what can you say about a water garden... this one was featured in the movie Logans Run. Hearing water rushing down an embankment is always relaxing... but you can only take so much of that.... just don't fall in!

The perfect place to get away from the traffic and roadwork going on right now. You feel your stress levels drop as you walk among the plants and water features.

This is a really cool area which one wouldn't expect from the middle of Texas. The architects did a great job making this both interesting and relaxing. It was wayyyyy too hot outside, but that's not the water garden's fault.

This is a nice relaxing walk in the park and perfect for those hot Texas days; sit in the shade and take in the scenery. Bring some snacks with you and I found it hard to locate a restroom.

I have been here too many times to count. It's a really cool place. The way it is designed makes you feel like you're surrounded by a bunch of waterfalls that meet. It is a neat spot for photos.

I can literally take a nap here and relax. The area was so nice and the water was beautiful at night with light changes. It is a great place to sit and soak in the moment.

We went to the water gardens on our most recent visit to Fort Worth. This is a well designed place that gives a sense of tranquility. I was too scared to walk to the bottom of the deep section and I didn't dare climb the mountain but I enjoyed myself anyway.
