Located across from The Sheraton Fort Worth and adjacent to the Fort Worth Convention Center, The Fort Worth Water Gardens provide over 4 acres of refreshing pools, fountains walkways and grassy knolls. Designed by noted New York architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee and dedicated to the City of Fort Worth by the Amon G. Carter Foundation, the park has provided Fort Worth residents with a "cooling oasis in the concrete jungle" since 1974.
The park centers around three pools of water and a terraced knoll, and is populated with over 500 species of plants and trees. The active pool, the largest of all the water pools, cascades down 38 feet, making its way across steps and terraces into a small pool below. The aerating pool offers multiple spray fountains and the mediation pool is a quiet escape that cascades almost 90 degrees down into a sunken walkway.
The Fort Worth Water Gardens made it's Hollywood debut when a scene in the film ‘Logan's Run' was shot in the active pool in July 1975. Additionally, the pool was featured at the end of the TV adaptation of ‘The Lathe of Heaven' in 1979.
The Fort Worth Water Gardens are located at 1502 Commerce St. Fort Worth, Texas and are open for enjoyed year round.
