The water features are large and enjoyable. Many people use their cameras here. It is never crowded, perhaps because it is set down in the earth. Due to being lower than street level, many people perhaps do not notice it and know to take advantage...More

Uber popular, this park of cascading water, noisy sound water, and a tranquil pool is a haven in what was once the heart of Sodom and Gamorah Texas style, Hell's Half Acre.

Interesting architect. Nice to walk around on sunny day. I particularly liked the waterfall a little scary when people were climbing on it. Lots of nice places for photos.
