The water gardens were very cool and a neat feature to the industrial city, but I didn't think it was a safe idea for there to be steps in the main fountain area all the way down to the center pool, since the center pool has a strong current to suck the water back and forth throughout the water feature....

Nice place to check out when you're in the area; but not something that I would really recommend going out of my way to see it. It's located across the Fort Worth Convention Center on one side and Texas A&M University School of Law on another side. Listening to the sound of running water is relaxing; it would be nice...

Beautiful tranquil outdoor spot for quiet reflection and refreshment on a hot day. It was raining the day I visited but still beautiful.

This is a nice place to visit, and has 3 water fall pools. It's still free to get in. There are homeless people there at times. They are a mostly hiding someplace else when there are a lot of people around the water gardens. They like to ask for money!

Wandered here on a hot Sunday morning and it was very peaceful. We walked around and enjoyed the shade and views for about an hour. The fountains were really impressive, location was clean and vegetation well maintained. Fort Worth is lucky to have this for free. Loved being able to walk down into the large fountain but not suitable for... More

A really different place in downtown Ft. where folks can come and relax to the sound of falling water and relax. I really recommend this place for a quiet afternoon or evening. Great place to take family photos

This is pretty cool to see. I stayed across the road at the Sheraton so that's how I stumbled upon this. Very clean inside this park with some neat pools to look at. I wouldn't travel far out of my way to see this, but if you're nearby it's worth the 15 minutes of time to see this!

This is a gem hidden in a great city. The water gardens feature three unique pools and a "mountain" that makes for a great time. We spent about 45 minutes walking through the gardens. It is a perfect opportunity to reflect and enjoy in light conversation with friends and family. This is also a good opportunity to take some pictures... More
