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

This is a fun free stop. It is a great place to take pictures. It is hard to beat free fun! I thought it would be a 5 minute stop but we ended up spending an hour here.
