I really loved the water wall. It was a spur of the moment stop while we were driving to a wedding in the Galleria area. There was no parking real close to the water wall so beware of that. We stayed for a little bit and basked in its beauty and snapped a few pics. It wasn't somewhere that requires... More

My son took me to see Water Wall on my first visit to Houston in 1999 and I requested a return visit in 2015 to share with four-year-old grandson. Memories are made at a place like this. It was like seeing Niagra Falls inside a city in Texas.

This was an interesting choice. It was very pleasant but I went expecting more. It is just a very large man made waterfall. Fun for photos and all. Great picnic spot too.

My oldest and I were in the area and had an hour to kill before our next stop, we hadn't been here in so long and we made a stop. On the weekends parking is free, many people were parked on the side but security would ask to move but they didn't realize the garage parking was free. It was... More

Walking around downtown Houston, we decided to walk to the Water Wall. It is a very tranquil and relaxing place. Very serene place and enjoyed seeing people having lunch or just setting in the grassy areas.

Unknown to some, the flip or dark side of the water wall also has streaming water. It is a very soothening place to be. Illegal marriages are rumored to take place.
