The largest man made "water fountain" in America with millions of gallons of water flowing over the towering Roman style structure ending in a pavilion set among dozens of oak trees and a green bowling style lawn. Perfect for jogging, strolling, meditating or just sitting while enjoying the scene. A ten in anyone's book!!

This is a great place to take pictures. Every time I go by the Water Wall, I see several groups taking pictures. Informal and Formal. Couples, Wedding Parties and Families. When you go by for a brief minute you feel transported from your daily life.

Walked passed the 'Water Wall' today on the way to Houston Centre. Located next to the Williams Tower you can't miss it. It's an amazing structure. Plenty of spray coming off so don't stand too close! Worth seeing in real life as pictures don't do it justice. Worth a visit..

We enjoyed seeing the water wall. It is interesting to walk around it and see it from different angles (it gave different views). We stood for quite a while just feeling the spray on our faces and enjoying the water noise. The only problem was finding a parking place and finding the wall among the buildings. I'd suggest parking at... More

I really enjoyed visiting the Water Wall. Located downtown amongst the office buildings, it was a bit hard to find a quick parking spot to jump out and spend 5 minutes at. It was amazing to look up at it as it splashed a fine water mist upon me. Refreshing to experience in a hot busy city. Worth a visit!!

I didn't think I would enjoy going to see a wall of water, however, I did. It's really beautiful and refreshing!!!!! Quite lovely to just stand there, looking and listening to it. :)

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
