I just discovered this garden after answering a trivia/photo question and think it would make a great place to take photos. I haven’t heard of other members talking about it, so thought to post it here.
This is a place where art, technology and nature join in a unique way.
Along with trails, public art, native plants and wildlife, the ponds and marshes of Waterworks Gardens filter and clean stormwater from the treatment plant’s 50 acres of roads, parking lots and hard surfaces.
Waterworks Gardens is designed as a series of garden “rooms.” The Knoll is the entry to Waterworks. The path then passes through a series of leaf-shaped ponds, an inlaid mosaic Grotto and wetlands.
Waterworks Gardens opened in 1996. The gardens are open between dawn and dusk year-round.

Instead of turning into the plant main entrance, continue on Monster Road S.W., go around the corner and up the hill. As you come down the incline, Waterworks will be on the right, just before you get to “T” intersection at Oakdale Avenue S.W.
