“wow , that is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Ok ,you won't spend an hour here maybe , but it is fun if you want to have a break and sit at a table or just chat with friends. Very relaxing and soothing, nice place . I love that you can find this in the middle of the city.

“Diamond in a coal mine-an Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Downtown Dallas in the summer is HOT and for the most part boring all year long. Fountain Place is a hidden jewel. You might not notice it even if you were walking down the sidewalk. Has tons of cool Cypress trees and hundreds of fountains and waterfalls. Main fountain dances at intervals. Great get away and rest place in heart of downtown. Lighted at night as pic shows. Worth a visit anyhow.

“A truly beautiful space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

OK, I'm biased. I get to work here. The building itself is a work of art, designed by I.M. Pei and winner of an international design award, but it is still a joy to walk across the open areas outside the building through a virtual garden of waterfalls, fountains and dancing waters. It truly is a place apart and worth seeing. Lots of tourists come to sit, take pictures or just enjoy the view and the water all around them.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

The fountain place is beautiful. The fountains surround a tall glass office building and restaurant. I would recommend to bring a sack lunch or a cup of your favorite coffee and sit out by the fountains. Very beautiful. We did walk through the fountain place office building to get to the other side. A security guard came up to us and we just simply asked if it was fine to cut through and he let us. He seemed very guarded of that building though that's for sure. There were also three small children playing in the fountains that shoot up but a security guard came out and told them to stop. Other than the security guards being overly protected of this place it is absolutely beautiful and a must see in Dallas!
