I've spent many hours here with my kids over the years, but the traffic has become pretty ridiculous. The nearby Galleria and all the office towers make this a highly congested area. It's best to visit during lunch if you work in Williams Tower, that way you don't have to deal with parking. Don't eat before you stand close to... More

Very well designed with lovely architecture, it's the Water Wall. This used to be a nice place to come and relax; the sound of the water was so loud it made you forget all your busy thoughts battling in your head. However now it has become more of a tourist attraction and it is very busy all the time. Wedding,... More

It is beautiful. Makes for pretty pictures, provided you can get one without someone else in it. There were way too many people !! It makes for a nice evening. The park is great to just sit and relax. Parking could be an issue and the mall closes at 9 I guess. I was told that it was not a... More

I was visiting Houston and staying in the Sheraton Suites. This is about 20 - 30 min walk away. It's a lovely park to sit in during the sunny weather and walk around. It's not very big but I really liked it. It can get very busy during the weekends. Usually saw people with children playing, young adults exercising and... More

It's not a big deal but very engaging if you're passing this way. Parking really close is a problem so best to walk there when you're nearby.

This place is undoubtedly very pretty to look at and also to listen to. It's a good timepass but there is always a crowd. One should see it in passing.
