It's good place to visit if you are in the area, I don't think it is worth a special trip. Keep in mind there is no parking, you can park in the Galleria parking lot which is about a block away and walk over. Nice to visit on a hot day to cool down a bit, hang out and people... More

Besides being aesthetically beautiful, this is a nice place to cool off in the hot Houston climate. There is no fee to enjoy this and photos and videos can easily be taken.

The Water Wall is impressive. One needs to walk around the entire structure to get a sense of all that water dropping from 65 feet. I almost got vertigo focusing on a wave as it fell from top to bottom

For decades locals and tourists have been flocking to this fountain to take pictures. Its iconic wall sits on thousands of Wedding and Quinceañera walls.

This is a very beautiful sight to visit . You may want to park at the Galeria and walk to this site. Many people come to take pictures for special occasions.

Great place to take friends who are visiting from out of town. Also a fun weekend spot to take the kids. We used to go all the time when our children were little, and I still try to pop by there now and then.

It's simple but awesome. It is a huge waterfall - 64-foot semicircle fountain that pours down the structure’s inner and outer walls. The site says it circulates 11,000 gallons of water a minute. It's hard to appreciate that unless you're standing in front of it. The spray will cool you on hot days - a mist comes off the base... More
