The Part of the Water Gardens You Forgot About

We started this issue above the treetops, and we finish it below. In an October 2014 article recognizing the 40th birthday of the Fort Worth Water Gardens, the Star-Telegram described the nearly 4.5-acre park as “a wonderland hidden in plain sight at the southern end of downtown — so much so that many longtime residents confess to never having been there.” Tucked away inside the urban park, designed by famous architect Philip Johnson, is a gem within a hidden gem – The Quiet Pool. Surrounded by cypress trees, the still pool, tucked behind walls and below ground, serves as the perfect scenic and quiet getaway from the action above for both natives and tourists alike.
