The architecture here is really nice. Excellent place to go for pictures, which each time I've gone, there are many people having photo shoots. Your photos can have a really nice background here in a relaxing setting.

I went here on an extremely hot day and it was wonderful being surrounded by all the trickling, misting and splashing water. Make sure you read the info provided about this place. Knowing the reasons for the design choices makes it extra special. A real gem.

Love walking and just sitting here. Nice spray of water which cools you off on a hot summer day. It is free to the public. Nice place to have a picnic or just to walk around and enjoy.

The rush of traffic and the sounds of a robust city melt away as you enter the Fort Worth Water Gardens. How could this be? This is not a building with thick walls or high-tech sound proofing. It is an open air collection of structures which are as much a feast for the eyes and ears as it is for... More

A lovely place to walk around, or through the steps and waterfalls of the Fort Worth Water Gardens. Good place for families to enjoy the water, though you don't get in the water, just climb and enjoy the sounds of the flowing water over the nicely desogned falls.

Are you old enough to remember the movie Logan's Run? It was a modernistic society that killed those over thirty. Pathetic plot really, but it was the seventies. It was filmed here, so it was conceived as a futuristic sort of place. It's cool and modern and yet calm and zen. Totally cool. Relaxing spot in the middle of the... More
