Fort Worth Water Gardens
Fort Worth's Water Gardens is a spectacular man-made creation. A crown jewel of Fort Worth, it is often used as a business, professional, wedding and tourist venues. Architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee were appointed by the Amon G. Carter foundation to create this masterpiece in the late 1960s. Covering over four blocks of downtown space, the Water Gardens offer outstanding sightseeing opportunities. More than 500 types of plants and trees adorn this 4.3 acre park.
Whereas this place is architectually spectacular I found it to be very scary. A death trap, actually. I couldn't bring myself to do more than just peer at it from the sidewalk while the brave ones ventured down into the concrete and water canyon.
Truthfully, I've felt safer on the 33rd floor glass balcony of the W Hotel's Ghostbar.
After being closed for a couple of years, the Water Garden is back open. Some modifications to make it safer for the little ones. This is a free area to come and just enjoy the sounds of the water, the sites and sound around the water garden. Plus, it is only a short walk to Sundance Square and the Bass Hall.
The Fort Worth Water Garden is a famous sight both positive and negative. It was featured in the early 70's Sci-Fi Movie Logans Run with Michael York.
Also tragedy struck a couple of years ago when a visiting Church group lost two youngsters and an Adult when they drowned in the center pool of the fountain.
Since then certain safety measures have been taken.
