5. Earth Fountain Park
There are numerous "pocket parks" located all over Camp Bowie for you to enjoy a little piece of nature & a quick photo for Instagram.

The sculpture, a Fort Worth Public Art project, is located in a traffic triangle know as Byers Green on Camp Bowie Boulevard at Eldridge Street. Carved out of a single, 30-ton block of Texas Sunset Red granite — the same granite used in the Tarrant County Courthouse — the sculpture echoes the color of the Thurber bricks used to pave Camp Bowie Boulevard.

9. The Kimbell Art Museum
The Kimbell Art Museum's 1972 building, designed by Louis I. Kahn, is widely regarded as one of the outstanding architectural achievements of the modern era. Kahn designed a building in which “light is the theme.” Natural light enters through narrow plexiglass skylights along the top of cycloid barrel vaults and is diffused by wing-shaped pierced-aluminum reflectors that hang below, giving a silvery gleam to the smooth concrete of the vault surfaces and providing a perfect, subtly fluctuating illumination for the works of art. The Kimbell Art Museum is the perfect place to bring a friend or family member for an ideal photo shoot. Don't miss out on this Instagrammable opportunity, you won't ever see anything else like it!
