Don't miss this! This is an amazing variations of water structures with layered levels of steps to climb and view the gardens at various heights. Plus many areas to walk in the water structure and cool off.

If you are looking for something unique and FREE and (bonus) something to do to cool off a bit than I would recommend the Fort Worth Water Gardens for sure!!! The Water Gardens are location in the town center very close to the convention center. Parking is a tad hard to find but worth it. When you enter the Gardens... More

Loved this area! The Water Gardens were a pleasant surprise. What a nice break from the conference to walk out the door and be in the gardens. Just putting your hands in the water that runs along the tops of walls is refreshing! Great place!

This area of Fort Worth is accessible by a free shuttle, Molly the Trolley that circles the downtown area picking up and dropping off people at designated areas. Free. Take Molly to the Sheraton, get off and walk across the street to the park. The first garden is a series of steps, a common theme, going deeper and deeper into... More

It is absolutely beautiful! The sound of water drowns out the sound of traffic, what a wonderful and unique creation. There is also interesting history to read about the water gardens. The quiet pool is also amazing with the tall trees the bottom of which seem to look like squirrels, seals, frogs and gnomes but when you arrive, the words... More

This is a wonderful, cool break in a hot day. It is beautiful, with trees, plants, and of course artwork to take photos with-a must see in the area.

We have visited here as a couple and as a family several times. There is indeed beauty in the layout of the garden however small children may not see the artistic value. It's better to visit in the evening as a couple and strolll through before dinner.

I came by the water gardens to kill some time before I took the TRE back to Irving. It is free and you can come by to see the water falls and take some pictures. There are a few minor rules to follow, but saw a lot of people walking in the water. Helped getting in the water after a... More

A unique spot in the middle of town. A nice surprise on a hot day! Not for those who have trouble walking.

Most people do not think that beautiful peaceful places like this one exist in Texas. This is a place you want to visit with your children or grandchildren. You can bring your special someone and have a sandwich while you listen to the water fall. Whether in the fall, winter, spring or in the evenings in the summer, this is... More
