The Fort Worth Water Gardens are a variety of waterfalls that show some cool architecture. It's a nice place to go for a stroll or just to enjoy some quiet time. Would recommend to go if you have 15-30 mins.

We were there in February and the water gardens were still pretty. It was neat that you could walk down into the middle of it. The sound of the water running was peaceful.

I wish we had arrived earlier in the day when it would have been less crowded, although it wasn't horribly crowded. There is some parking on the street or a parking garage across the street. Great place to photograph... the steps going down or back...More

We visited as the sun was setting as we arrived in Fort Worth late. We were greeted by strange homeless men and drunks who were making us feel on edge, so that why I don't recommend to visit as the sun goes down and the...More

With the new Trinity Metro train going to downtown Fort Worth, the Water Gardens were the first stop after passing through the T&P Station with its beautiful art deco ceiling. My six year old grandson was amazed to walk around and down into the water...More

We left this attraction as the last stop to visit in FW. Therefore, we came around 9 PM when it was dark, and unfortunately the waterfalls are not so well lit. Anyway, I was amazed with them. The pics you see cannot bring you the...More

A very interesting water display. There are several sections although one is inactive during the winter months. The sound of the cascading water is very relaxing. The fountain display was also very nice.

Visited these water gardens on Christmas Eve 2018. There was not very many people about but this made the visit even better. It was quite quiet just the sound of trickling water. The water features were a delight to see, baying in different shapes and...More

The convention center is close by, so if it is open then you can go there, but I don't recall restrooms specific to the park.
