On Location #18 - Logan's Run in Fort Worth

As the poster says, welcome to the 23rd century!

Apparently you can visit the 23rd century world of Logan's Run anytime you want by taking a trip to the Fort Worth Water Gardens.

The 20th century park filled in as a 23rd century doohickey in some scenes toward the end of the film.

Despite Micheal York's excitement (seen below) I don't recommend that you jump in. Just take in the scenery and take some pictures. Be warned though, after your visit you WILL need to pee.

Here are some pictures of some of the geology related items they have on display at the Exchange:
