Walked by the fountains July 13th and there is no water to be seen in any of the fountains, very disappointing.

No water in the fountains. The building is up for lease so the fountains are dry. Seems like it was impressive when it was running. Sad it is currently out of commission.

Currently, one large splash pad is operating in the back area near where the food truck parks. It was pretty and changed heights/frequency. All the other fountains/pools were empty.

Building is for lease so fountains are empty and no longer operating. Nothing to see at this time, hopefully this will change

As per other reviews. Building is for lease and the fountains belong to the building. So they are not active, even no water in the ponds. Clearly been like this for several months so I doubt if they will ever be active again.

I happened to walk by this place and really like it. It's peaceful and quiet. You may sit down by the fountain and have some reading or just a daydream.

Gorgeously landscaped. Very romantic feel to the place. This place would be a nice wedding venue. We loved our visit today.

There is a lot of fountains at the base of the building. A peaceful place to wonder around or have a picnic.

The water place is def worth a visit and a nice place to relax and read a book. Not much to do around it though but that might be a bit common for Dallas.
