Feel the temperature drop and take amazing photos, especially with the nearby ulta-reflective Transco/Williams Tower, on both sides of the Water Wall. The only drawback is parking. Be careful of the no-parking zones, which basically surround the park. There is a public parking garage nearby, pay the nominal charge - I think it was $3 the last time we visited... More

We love the Water Wall and always take family & friends who are visiting Houston. No one has ever been disappointed. The large green space facing the Water Wall is a nice place for kids to play or for having a picnic lunch or just about anything. Standing inside the wall area is quite a treat. It is cooling in...

Parking is a bit hard to find. It's not much to this. Take a picture or two and keep it moving kind of a thing.

Very nice, romantic for couples but also nice for families. Make sure you go on the weekend so you get free parking in the garage.

Very nice place, the water is refreshing and very cool looking. This is definitely a hidden treasure worth finding in Houston. Been here for a long time and never realized this beauty. I recommend to any tourist and Houstonian to visit this place at least once.

This is a stunning fountain located in the center of downtown Houston, and it's awesome. It's mind blowing how tall it is and how beautiful it is and how fantastically loud it is and how magically inspiring it is. It's a great place for young and old, for families, for couples, for anyone. But there's no where to park. Seriously.... More

Worth seeing on a hot day (it was raining when we were there) and it was a hassle to find - and even worse to try to find a spot to park. On a warm day I would guess it might be busy (we were the only ones there when we saw it) but then it would be even more... More

This is a nice outing for any occasion. I saw families, friends, couples, etc. all around at this park. It's really close to the Galleria Mall so you can just park there and go. I spent about 20-30 minutes just hanging out and taking photos. If you have time or need to waste time, it's a good thing to see.

We are on a road trip and are spending a few days in Houston. While researching things to do in Houston, the water wall kept coming up. So, we went! It was very cool and definitely unique. I would suggest it if your in the area. I didn't have a problem with parking. There is a parking garage right across... More
