We’ve rounded up some of the best water wonders in Fort Worth for the perfect selfie shot or next family portrait!
1502 Commerce St.
Designed by Philip Johnson and John Burgee, this water work houses three distinct pools: the aerating, the quiet and the active pool. Stroll through this urban oasis near the Fort Worth Convention Center and Omni Hotel.
201 Main St.
These fountains put the dance in Sundance Square for everyone, especially when the sun is high in the sky. Dip your toes in from 2-6 p.m. and then stick around for a movie on the cooled concrete every Thursday night in the summer.
3333 Camp Bowie Blvd.
The reflecting pools found adjacent to the Kahn building offer a relaxing environment to sit back and take in the beauty of both architecture and world-class art.
3220 Botanic Garden Blvd.
Say "om" and "wow" inside the Japanese Gardens. At 7.5 acres, the garden is filled with cherry trees, Japanese maples, magnolias, bridges and ponds which are home to over 1,200 Koi fish.

Originally installed in 1969, the fountain seen today replaced the original in December 2007. Each flute represents a different class, with the water representative of all the knowledge flowing on campus. It's definitely a graduation photo must-stop!
200 Pumphrey Dr.
The city’s only natural waterfall was recently opened to the public and features the McDonnell Douglas C-9, a military version of the McDonnell Douglas DC-9 airliner.
6952 Cahoba Dr.
Another natural gem off the beaten path these fountains can be found right off the Lake Worth Dam.
100 E Weatherford St.
It’s not a giant fountain but it’s got a giant history as it was installed in 1892 to honor those who watered their horses in the same spot over a century ago.
Cross Section of Camp Bowie Blvd., Eldridge St. and Byers Ave.
This piece of work feels more like a living art exhibit than a fountain. The nine-foot orb carved from granite by Austin-based artist Philippe Klinefelter calls you to stop and wonder and take in the scenery at one of the nearby benches.
2201 N Commerce St.
There’s a reason this place is a tradition besides the margaritas and the fajitas, so don’t forget to get the shot before the sun goes down!
