Came here on a late Wednesday morning, hardly anyone was there so it was cool to stroll around the grounds without crowds. There were about 7 different fountains and a large reflecting pool. Covered about 8 acres or so. Very neat place to check out and walk around the fountains

The water gardens were much more than what I was expecting! I thought it might be a fountain and a pool, but there were lots of different and unique things to see. I liked that there were paths next to the water, and in one there were stepping stones through the water. Very nice! If I had brought different clothes... More

Several water features in this park make it a fun place to spend a few hours, or stop to eat a take out lunch. The concrete "mountain" provides a nice view of the park. Would be especially fun for kids, though sadly it is a 'water garden' not a 'water park', so no opportunity for splashing around. Interesting plaque about... More

This is a peaceful place. The fountains are calming. There is also a trail to walk around for added exercise.

The thing which i liked about is the small size area, you will have a good time without needing to spend several hours.

Well worth the visit! The serenity pool speaks for itself. The waterfalls is the best of all! It can be deceiving! As you walk down the steps, the roar of the falls and the angles of the steps give you an balanced feeling. Must see!

At first glance, overly filled with stone blocks. Gave it a Stalinesque appearance. But then was drawn into the attractions. The three main water areas - the aerated pool, the quiet pool, and the active pool are all beautiful and amazingly designed. Each one is very different and conveys an entirely different mood. Even the stone block "mountain" was interesting,... More

This was the best kept secret!!! The kids loved exploring all the water gardens. We spent two hours enjoying the gardens and could have stayed longer. The only cost was the parking meter!

Surprising find with one of the stops from the shuttle old fashioned free on off bus that takes you around Fort Worth. It was a peaceful experience spending time in this man made cleverly designed, interactive waterfall.
