Fort Worth Water Gardens

Fort Worth Water Gardens

The Fort Worth Water Gardens is one of the best attractions that Texas has to offer. Built in 1974 by architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee, the water garden was dedicated to the City of Fort Worth by the Amon G. Carter Foundation. It measures 4.3 acre (1.7 hectare) so there is plenty of space for everybody to enjoy this amazing surrounding. 

The water park is divided into 4 areas: The Active Pool, The Aerating Pool, The Quiet Pool and The Mountain. The Active Pool is done the traditional way, just like Solomon’s temple where the water comes from different directions, creating waterfalls, something to cool you down from the heat of Texas. The sci-fi movie “Logan’s Run “shot a chase scene here on 1975.The pool was also featured in the TV adaptation of the movie”The Lathe of Heaven” in the ending. 

The place looks unrealistic but beautiful that sci-fi movie directors choose this place to shot their movies. Next is the Aerating Pool which has evenly spaced array of sprinklers that creates rainbows as sunlight passes through the tiny droplets. The Quiet Pool, as the name suggest is very quiet and tranquil. The cypress trees that surround the pool create a shadow that makes the place dramatic. The Fort Worth Water Gardens is a place where you can relax and be refreshed, a place you can visit to escape the buzzing sound of the city. 

The water terraces are an excellent place to cool done not only the body but also the soul. The gentle splashes of water makes you feel that you are in a nature escape. It is also a perfect location for dates, proposals and very memorable weddings. Fort Worth Water Gardens is open from 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. every day and everyone can enjoy this unforgettable experience for free.
