I stumbled on this when visiting the regional EPA offices. This is an interesting water feature, but the area is too busy for the intended tranquil effect.

During our tour of Fort Worth with Billy Texas Bar-B-Q Tour we stopped at the water fountains. We were fascinated by the water fountain display. A great area for adults to relax and children to play under supervision. We were amazed at the beauty of the trees and their roots growing through every crack in the concrete pavement. see photos

Bing Daily image happened to feature the gardens as I just so happen to be traveling by that way. I decided to visit. I had no idea that it was as much of a beauty as it was when I arrived. Absolute timeless making I could sit there for hours. If you are in the area, it would be a... More

A really unique use of space in downtown. Several different pools to have a look at. I'd imagine it would be really relaxing in the summertime.

While staying at the Omni Hotel we walked across the street to enjoy the park. We first saw from our room on the 15th floor. It was only a short distance of less than 150 feet, the misting pond was pretty but the water fall are magnificent. We initially wanted to walk to the bottom but chose not to do... More

I grew up in Fort Worth and have enjoyed the Water Gardens many, many times over years. I had not been there for a long time and visited with all my kids while on a vacation to Fort Worth. Beautifully designed (co-designed by the world famous architect Phillip Johnson) park with numerous water features. A pleasant serene place for a... More

Had not planned to visit here prior to visiting the town itself. However what a very pleasant surprise ! The Quiet Garden was very reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland as suggested by the plaques. The Garden Fountain however was my favourite although you do need to be careful when walking down the steps. We sat for at least 15 very... More

Me and a friend have been here a couple times together and it's really cool! A nice fun free thing to do while you are in the area. Sometimes it's crowded...but if the weather is nice, it's really fun to just sit and relax, or explore the different cement and water fountains

Exquisite design, Must see in Fort Worth. Be careful walking down the stone steps to the bottom of the Garden fountain. Do not miss the other smaller fountains in the garden. Parking limited on the street with meters.

The water gardens are opposite the Omni Hotel on Houston St. It is a lovely display of different water features, with large trees for shade. Unfortunately it started to rain while we were there which cut our visit short, but I can see it would be a lovely spot on a warm, sunny day. Well worth a visit and it's... More
