We traveled across the city to get to the Water Wall, because some of my friends had pictures of it posted and it looked so beautiful. When we arrived, I couldn't believe it. There were nasty looking black wooden walls blocking the Water Wall. It wasn't on. There were pigeons all over it. It looked disgusting and so dirty. We... More

I grew up in Houston and never considered the water wall anything special.... people go there to take pictures on graduation day if you live close, people like to walk by it at night. But if you are visiting Houston only stop here if it's on your way. It's nothing crazy special

Probably not worth a special trip, but we were staying nearby and wandered along on a warm evening to the Water Wall. It really is rather stunning even for our skeptical teen kids. Standing in the middle surrounded by this wall of falling water is a rather odd feeling. As darkness falls the lighting is impressive. The mist and spray... More

You hear a lot about this spot, but I didn't get it. It's ok if you are already in the area, but its not really worth a special trip. the name says it all....its a wall of water.

We walked in every direction before we finally found the water wall, but what a cool relief when we did. The water mists up to cool you off and walking up to the water gives a weird vertigo sensation since the water falls from above your head and fills your entire field of vision.

There isn't a whole lot going on but the water wall is beautiful. We walked down to see it and were glad that we did.

A wonderful place to visit (with kids) and seating to just relax in the Galleria and enjoy people watching. Always a crowd. The water wall is relaxing and just a fun place to hang out on a not too hot Houston day.

There's no fee to enter and see this water wall, but need to keep in mind that it opens from 8AM to 9PM. If you go before or after those time, I heard the there will be no water coming out. It's a nice and relaxing place to visit in Houston. You could park your car in the galleria mall's... More

Well located and peaceful. Make sure to go during the week to avoid crowds. This is a great place for a date or just to go and have lunch and relax. The background makes for amazing photos
