The Fort Worth Water Gardens - Fort Worth - Texas.
The Fort Worth Water Gardens are a modern take on ancient city fountains, with Mother Nature as the theme instead of cherubs and Roman gods.
Built in 1974 by a couple of fancy-pants architects from New York (Philip Johnson and John Burgee) this park covers 4.3 acres smack dab in the middle of downtown Fort Worth. Even though flanked by skyscrapers and Interstate 30, it successfully creates a contemplative oasis in the middle of a busy urban environment.
