The water wall offers an amazing view of water falling over a wall with a cool breeze and wonderful sound of water. Theres a small park at this place as well. Overall its a good place to spend a couple of hours in the evening.

The Water Wall is a beautiful landmark in Houston, Texas. There is no admission, and after hours the parking garage is also free, so add this to your "list of free stuff to do in Houston" list. There is no seating and it's not really intended to be a place to linger, but it is quite beautiful especially at night,... More

it looked good from the car. We did not have a lot of time and in fact there is nothing else to see on that site so you do not need long. It was disappointing because there is no parking anywhere around this park and as I was the driver I could not see all of it.

Not sure if I would travel downtown ONLY to see this.. But the Water Wall is VERY well done and great photo opportunity. No cost except of course local city parking. Galleria Mall is awesome!

As a college student at U of H, we would go and hang out on the lawn of this water wall and stare at it in awe. 25 years later it's still fun to see and yes you will get wet if you get too close. We went on a Sunday morning and had it all to ourselves and got... More

A must see when you visit Houston. There have been many proposals there. It is very romantic and if you are with a friend or family it is just an awesome sight.

The Water Wall is in Water Wall Park, a small, 2.8-acre (1.13 ha) park, near the Houston Galleria and the south side of the Williams Tower. Its 64-foot (19.5 m) height echoes the Williams Tower’s 64 stories. A spectacular, tall, half-circle fountain circulates the water in a 3-hour cycle. Water covers its outer walls and its inner walls. It’s more... More

Go there and make a picture of you in front of the waterfalls. This is is mandatory for every visitor in Houston. The Galleria is within 5 min of walking distance, you can park your car there and combine this activity with a little shopping trip. If you have more time, spent it in front of the waterfall on the... More

The first time we stopped by, the water was turned off in the middle of the day (bummer). We returned the next day and it had been turned back on. The wall is huge and the water does splash a little, so you may get misted. This is a very relaxing place. However, there was some sort of photo shoot... More
