This wall close to the galleria is nice place to relax.

This is different than most water walls, a unique feature close to many things, a nice park surrounds the area a good place to relax and wind down.

We walked over to the Water Wall while shopping in the Galleria. It's free and provides an opportunity for some nice photos. There is a nice green area in front of it too where you could have a picnic or relax on a nice sunny day.

While siteseeking in the Galleria area of Houston with my wife we stopped and parked close to this attraction, not knowing what it was from afar. Upon closer view it was a cascading wall of water, about 4 - 5 stories tall with a retention pool at its base. Impressionable Memory. This is why we travel all over the world.

Great for a few minutes of stop. I could not stay close to the wall for too long because of the water splashes on your face. But otherwise, when the weather is good...I think...a view sitting a little away from the wall would be pretty as well..I am not sure of a night view. I went there during the day.

Its a pretty cool structure and I'd say if you're in Houston you should go to this place. Takes only about 15 minutes

The Water Wall is beautiful and worth a visit. Just be careful where you park or you might get a ticket.

I went to the water wall and it was a very good and unexpected nice experience. It is a very short visit but this place is unique and I highly recommend you. The water wall is two black far for the Galleria's mall. You can par your car there and walk to the wall and return to the mall

The grounds around the wall are excellent for Frisbee with the dog or a paper bag lunch. The perfect place to read or retrospect.

We were visiting relatives in Houston and decided to stay at a hotel in the Galleria area. Accidentally came upon the Water Wall when trying to "walk the neighborhood." Wall seems to be an engineering master piece that no one can touch. Very strange brick installation in front of the water. No reason to go out of your way to... More
