Fort Worth Water Gardens

18 Jul

We took a group trip down to check out the Fort Worth Water Gardens- an urban jungle of concrete and water.

The Fort Worth Water Gardens is a beautiful and refreshing oasis adjacent to the Fort Worth Convention Center. Designed by Phillip Johnson, the Fort Worth Water Gardens is an architectural and engineering marvel to be enjoyed any time of the year. Visitors can experience a variety of water features as they wander through this relaxing urban park.

From left: Anna, Elijah, Sadie and Gretchen rush to the first fountain at the entrance. Elijah and Sadie couldn’t say enough about how beautiful Fort Worth is on our way through the city.

From left: Brett, Kenzie, Anna, Sadie and Elijah appreciate a rainbow over the aerating pool.

Elijah and Sadie stare into the active pool which is a tremendous sight to behold.

A little lunch!

Elijah navigates the top steps of the active pool. If you look behind him you can see the walkway of separate blocks that one can take down to the bottom of the pool. Elijah opted not to go down.

Kenzie, Sadie, myself, and Rachel at the bottom of the active pool. Go girls! A bit of an intense journey with a child on each hand….

Elijah gets tricky on the roots (yes, those are the roots) of a tree next to the meditation pool.

Tactile Sadie feels the water as it slides down the walls surrounding the meditation pool.

Sadie and Kenzie dip their feet in the meditation pool as we wind down an exciting afternoon.

    That was a fun afternoon. I would love to go back for another picnic lunch, but this time with a stroller πŸ˜‰

    Um, sorry my kids ate all your waffles. 😦
    Next time we’ll have to find out what you’re bringing before we leave, so I can sneak extra Magical Sarah Food in!

    Man! It looks so gorgeous there! I wish we could have joined you. After the kids see these pictures (they’re awesome), I’ll bet they’d be up for it if anyone decides to go again. πŸ™‚
