Every great city should have an oasis in the center. The Fort Worth Water gardens do not disappoint. When it gets to be over 100 degrees in Fort Worth it is nice to visit the Water Gardens. The water fountains, lower the temp and it is quite pleasant. Every visitor to Fort Worth should visit the Fort Worth Water Gardens!

This is featured in the movie Logan's Run - which is actually how we heard about it and decided to go visit it after seeing how interesting it is. We went at night and it wasn't crowded - just some people on dates mostly. It was peaceful and pretty quiet with the exception of the sound of rushing water. One... More

This park was a delight for the senses. There are three water pools and three areas in this 4-acre park. It is designed to suprise and delight visitors to the area. One water pool has water cascading down sloping stone sides into a pool at the bottom of the display. You can walk down to the center if you want.... More

We went here after our visit to Glenrose. The water garden is marvellous. Very beautifully designed architecture. There are 3 different types of pools - the quiet pool, the aerated pool and the main pool. The main water garden is awesome. Though I was scared to climb down the steps at first because of the moving water , my son... More

Beautiful gem in the city. Very pretty and calm. As well as cooling. We were there on a early Saturday afternoon. Nice crowd of people but still calming and relaxing. There is an area for sitting on blankets and such. Really enjoyed it as did my nephew.

Loved it! The gardens were an unexpected pleasure in an otherwise dull city. They are lovely place to relax and cool down - you can't get in the water but stand close enough and the spray will hit you!

Beautiful relaxing place. Amazing concept. A piece of Eden in the middle of downtown Ft Worth. Wander around and enjoy the trees and terraced water.

I walked through the water gardens 25+ years ago and have wanted to go back every time we're in Fort Worth. The gardens were as remembered...very pretty and well maintained. However, the "Mountain" fountain was not in service on the day we visited (water was drained) and we only got to see three of the four fountains. I would recommend... More
