the waterwall is refreshing great background for photos and the park is good for an evening walk, it can also be a great place for kids also. Parking is a challenge here. You can park at the Galleria IV's Nordstrom. Area: Galleria / Transco

The best is the Fountain in front of the Williams Tower....a beautiful waterfall....! In the Tower's lobby you can see their art exhibit. I have seen several exhibits, the last one of excelent photographs by Russian artists.

The Williams Tower in the Galleria is one of the tallest buildings in the area. Behind the building they have water wall. Many people can be seen in this area taking pictures. People can be seen relaxing on the grass during spring time..

A famous Houston location for pictures. Hopefully it isnt' turned off when you are there. 5 minutes from The Galleria. Get up to the observation deck in Williams Tower if you can...fabulous views of the city out to the ship channel.

I worked in the Williams Tower for 11 years. It was great to go shopping at lunch or sit out by the wall wall and enjoy the sun.
