Even though it was very hot and humid, the water garden was very relaxing. There were breezes blowing intermittently while we took pictures and that help quite a bit. I just wish more of the water jets had been going. Many of them were off...More

If you have some spare time before a business meeting (the only reason for being in Fort Worth) this is not the worst place to spend it. The name is a little deceiving most of the garden is concrete but there is also lots of...More

Love to visit here. I always bring my OOT guests to sample the gorgeous, innovative setting. You never would guess that such a beautiful oasis exists in Downtown Fort Worth. You can spend as little as 30 minutes here if you are short on time,...More

Went here on a Saturday morning, very quiet and serene. You can walk down to be a part of the actual sculpture. The grounds were very nice to walk around and enjoy the beauty of the water features. Best part,it was free.

The Water Gardens were a great quick stop. The waterfall pool has steps which are fun to climb down. Young children should be accompanied by an adult. The aerated pool was soothing. A great spot for photos.

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.
