I can't even say that this a must to take your guests or family when visiting Houston, as there is not much to see. Whoever and whatever ended up making this place, a big thank you. I think we need more places like these to feel there is something in Houston and it is a city with a lot more... More

It's just a water wall. Good photo op if you're from out of town and want to let your loved ones know you were in Houston. Otherwise, while it's touted as one of Houston's landmarks, I would not make any special effort to get here if you are not in the vicinity, say, to visit the nearby Galleria mall

This is a good spot to have a bite to eat or just relax from all your running around. It's loud as you get up close, would be a good spot for kids to enjoy the spray & cool down on a warm day.

We have lived here for only six years but this is the place we bring all of our visitors from out of town. Unique to Houston, the Water Wall offers a wonderful backdrop for pictures of family, graduates, prom and wedding pictures.

When I have visitors coming to Houston, this is where we go to take great photos. It's kind of a weird optical illusion and the mist from the falling water is really refreshing.

A must see...so pretty! Great place to have a picnic and take lots of pictures. Went with my teenage boys, they loved it. A hidden treasure indeed!

It's really very pretty, the area is green and the buildings around are the only thing reminding you that it's in a city.

If you come to Houston, you have to go see the water wall! It's beautiful! I took my engagement pictures there and they came out fantastic!!! You can have a picnic there or just time to take your family out.

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

How can you not enjoy this beauty. It was my first time visiting the wall. it was so peaceful and it was prom time as well so we got to see the young couples taking their pictures directly across the park is Williams Tower.
