Fort Worth Water Gardens


Craig was home today and we wanted to do something fun and inexpensive with the kids. He did a search on the Internet for "free things to do in DFW" and there are so many cool things. We chose the water gardens for our first outing from the list. The kids loved it. There are 3 different pools there. The one you can walk down into (the bottom picture, I forgot a camera so these pics are courtesy of the web) is called The Active Pool, there is The Quiet Meditation Pool, and The Aerating pool, which has tons of fountains spraying in it. There is also a "mountain" which Paige and Zoe climbed up (I couldn't watch :) Craig let Livee climb up part way. Miles just wanted to run everywhere. It was a hot day, but it was actually nice there. There was a good breeze and it was so shady from all the trees. There are tons of pretty paths to walk around and grassy areas to sit in. Next time we go we are going to pack a lunch and have a picnic. We could have stayed for a while longer, but Livee needed to go potty "RIGHT NOW", so we left and then we went and ate at Denny's. Kids eat free on Tuesdays! :) It was a really fun, relaxing family day and it only cost about $20 for dinner. Good find Craig!

Lynda, you should spend the day at the FW Botanical Gardens. It is great yto have a picnic. Almost the entire thing is free. Bring extra bread to feed the turtles. Also, there is a park close by.
