We were staying at the Westin Oaks (Galleria) and the Water wall was only 1 block down the street. We decided to take a stroll and have a gander. It was worth it. The day was lovely, the sun shining and we came upon this lovely feature near a park. Go into the centre for a better view and a... More

This is a majestic wall of water with 11,000 gallons pouring off of it each minute. It is the most photographed area in Houston. Beware that on cold days, you will feel the cold mist. On hot days, it is refreshing. Go into the center of the semi-circle and have someone, if possible, take your photo. You will look so... More

Great place to relax and hang out after shopping at the galleria. Also a great place to take some cool pictures.

It's cool to see, but don't make it a priority... It's just water! It's nothing special, you shouldn't rush to it. There are plenty of other things to do in Houston!

This was a great place to take a picture. We enjoyed looking at the wall of water, feel the mist coming off the falls, and spend a few minutes taking it all in. However, don't go out of your way to see this place because it is what it is...a man made waterfall located near a major shopping facility. Nothing... More

This was the perfect little side trip before the mall opened. It is very impressive and a great photo op (although a bride was having her portrait done so we spent most of our time watching her trying to stay dry, very entertaining!).

This is one of my favorite spots in Houston. I have brought several out of town guests here and they have all been completely stunned and impressed. Park about a block away in the Galleria parking lot for free. Great place for pictures or to have a picnic out on the big lawn between the Waterwall and Williams Tower!

This is a place where you can come and relax by listening to the sound of water flowing down the wall. It is also a great place to take pictures. There really isn't much more to do other than that. I like to take the kids, but even they get bored after a while. Make sure everyone uses the restroom... More

It's something you must see while in Houston, so we did. It's pretty nice, as is the park in front of it. It was cold that day, so I didn't get too close as it sprays water about 10+ feet from the base. I imagine on a hot day it would be heavenly to feel the spray.

Dropped by on the 29th January to check out this attraction. Bitterly disappointed as it wasn't even turned on. Do they just turn it off whenever they feel like? Don't go out of your way to see this. You could well waste your time like I did.
