Logan's Run Water Garden

Field review by the editors.

Fort Worth, Texas

When Fort Worth cut the ribbon on its "Water Garden" in 1974, the Phillip Johnson-designed four-acre site was hailed as a welcome oasis of plants and wetness in a formerly seedy section of downtown. The Garden is still a popular spot for lunch eaters and wedding photographers, but its "Active Pool" is especially loved by fans of the 1976 sci-fi film Logan's Run. It was on its futuristic water-splashed terraces that the film's bewildered-young-people-who-can-now-grow-old emerged from their dystopian domed city into the real world. Of downtown Fort Worth.
