Fort Worth Water Gardens, Fort Worth

(4.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
In the middle of an urban oasis, you can escape the heat at Fort Worth Water Gardens. The 1.7 hectare (4.3 acre) park features terraces with water flowing throughout, including the active cascading pool, which drops 11 m (38 ft) into a small body of water. Architects Phillip Johnson and John Burgee built this park in 1974. Take a stroll around one of the three pools of water for which the park is famous. View the blue meditation pool that is surrounded by cypress trees and the aerating pool, surrounded by oaks. The park is also well known for its terraced knoll, which helps keep the noise of the city out.

  • I’ve wanted to take my family to see the Fort Worth Water Gardens since learning of them a few years ago (little embarrassing we’ve been here so long and I’m just now getting to know the area!). We vi...  more »
  • The water gardens was OK. I thought it was more to do but it was just sitting there and admiring the water. It would be a nice place to go on a date.  more »

  • Great local place, fun to see, nothing else is quite like it. Stairs down to the most active pool are a bit treacherous. Not for the elderly or small children. The quiet pool is beautiful. . Super fun place to visit and take photos. Not very busy on a fall weeknight.
  • We love the Fort Worth Water Gardens. There are usually lots of people around when the weather is nice, but it doesn't feel crowded. Kids enjoy it, and it's a nice place for photos.
  • This was a experience I will never forget ..we had kids with us and it was still romantic. It's breathe taking
  • Another top 10 of Fort Worth hidden gems. Its full of history. Of inspiration, devastation, peace and joy. all in one. Go. Read the memories. Its worth it and it's free!
  • Beautiful water features and it's a free place to enjoy. No free parking and none really nearby. Even so, worth the time and price of entry.
