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.

  • Thank you Mrs. Donna and her staff Food and services was A1!❤
  • This is a hidden gem in Fort Worth. The water is beautiful to look at and you even get to walk down into the base of the monument. It was safe not slippery or dirty at all. This is a nice romantic spot to take a date or your family. This was my first time visiting but definitely not my last. I will bring all of my out of town family down here to see this area. Well worth the visit.
