If you are in Ft Worth, go see the Water Gardens, unique architectural experience, amazing atmosphere from peace quiet, to raging water falls in the middle of the city. Great for families kids can run around, couples find romantic walks or pick a water feature and sit down and chill out. Its all here. Very cool evening stroll. FREE

This place is so unique and cool. It is a great spot to take a family picture. It's a quick stop and their are meters right around it, so it's a 25 cent photo stop.

The water gardens are so peaceful and serene. The best part- it's FREE! We love to walk around and look at the flowing water and it's a perfect photo spot!

If you're looking for a relaxing experience in the middle of Fort Worth, then head to the water gardens. Since it's still hot out now and will probably be throughout September, I recommend going early in the day because you're going to be dripping in sweat if you go after 9 or 10 AM (and you're not allowed to go...

There were a lot of people just hanging around, not very appealing people. We did not feel safe in this area after dark. We will not return unless its daytime.

At night there are not as many peoe there. With the TX summer heat going in the day makes it super humid so make sure you kill the ozone layer with that hairspray before your day out.

Fantastic place to explore and talk - although in places the water noise makes conversation impossible. They also have some entertainment in the gardens, so research before you go. Great place to stroll and the water just helps to take you mind away from the busy, hot days to a more tranquil and peaceful place.

Wow. What a surprise in the middle of the city. If I lived here I would spend a lot of time at the water gardens. Quiet and peaceful.
