Trip Planner: USA / Texas / Fort Worth / Fort Worth Water Gardens
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.

A fun place to spend time experiencing the water, the architecture, and the great use of the space. I have been here a number of times over the years really enjoy it!

The place is beautiful with several water features. Trees were in full Autumn/Fall colors. Nice and calm atmosphere

This was an absolutely refreshing experience. More than enough to see and take in with the different pools, water features, plant life and walkways. We took our time to walk and enjoy this area and the beautiful scenery here. Lots of places to sit and relax with trees all around for shade, a nice breeze finding it's way through the park. Can't wait to go back at night to see the lights and hopefully the water works will be fully going in all the features. Now parking is not easy, but paid parking is available to the South end of the park in front of the Texas & Pacific Lofts off of Lancaster Ave.
I would say if you are in the Dallas or fort worth area you should visit this place. The place is very simple and it has just steps where water is flowing from all the way top to bottom. One of the amazing thing is if you will go down to all the way bottom then the sound of water is amazing and one should not miss that for sure. There are some free parking nearby but not sure if it's always free but I would suggest to be ready on weekends as there are limited spots near by but as it's Texas so you will get parking eventually may be little far.
