We stopped and walked all around this location in the early evening. We have never had more fun playing and looking at all the beautiful water attractions. My son taught me how to jump from place to place without getting wet....... so much fun

Have visited here many times and it is always fun to see and photograph. It is also conveniently located in downtown Fort Worth and close to other attractions, dining, and lodging.

What a fun place for the whole family. Huge hole in the ground with water, waterfalls and stepping stones everywhere. Families were having a great time traversing the walkways down in the bottom. Go there if you can.

This was a neat little place to see, especially considering it was free. There are several fountains but its just a pretty oasis in the middle of the downtown. The main fountain is a little dangerous as it can get slippery so definitely have to use caution. Worth stopping by to see if in the area.

We stopped here for about 30 mins to stretch our legs, kids 11 and 14 loved the fountains and being able to climb on the structures and down the steps. We probably would have stayed longer but didn't have any more change for the parking meter across the street. Would have been a great place to bring a lunch and... More

If you like water, the Water Gardens are a must. This is true architectural heaven. Exquisite waterfalls surround you on all sides. There is a large water garden with stairs leading down so you can sit or stand in the midst and mist of the water rushing down around you. It is truly a sight to behold. Smaller waterfalls are...

Nice oasis next to the convention center. 4.5 acres of interesting water displays. Has three basic area. The rushing water is very unique with water cominfgin at all angles. The fountains are interesting in that they don't spray the spectators. The quiet pool is ringed by water that runs down high walls and has cypress trees surrounding it. It was... More

Great spot for photos, urban exploring and just a cool place to hang out by yourself or with friends. Very busy place for relaxing or people watching.

This is a really unique park. The angles and multi-level architecture make it feel like you have been transported to some place different... one minute you are in the middle of a downtown, the next minute you are in the middle of a stone water garden and not sure about what is around the next corner. I've visited several times... More

The water gardens in downtown Ft. Worth is really wonderful and well-designed by Philip Johnson. It's a beautiful and relaxing experience with three different water themes. The water falls was our favorite as you step down into the water falling on four sides. It was amazing and I didn't want to leave.
