This is mainly what it is, a water wall. A water feature in the middle of down where the water splashes down from this huge wall. It was a small cozy park in front of it but not much else. Its a nice place for a break from the summer heat or a lunch break, bring your food though. A... More

We visited this very interesting place with my family. This was really something special. We enjoyed it very much. We took many pictures with the kids. Be careful you can be wet easily.

If you love the sound of water take a break sitting next to this. But don't go on a hot day, you'll want to jump in.

Tucked away in the corner of the Galleria area is the work of art. Pay a visit, particularly on a hot day.

Great to see all the families enjoying this fountain, and people taking wedding pictures. Getting up close and feeling the spray was great on a hot day.

For me the name "Water Wall" meant, a decorated wall with water sliding down its sides, like you see so many in high scale hotel lobbies, entrances to apartment complexes and so on.

This is very beautiful and a great place to take photographs, there are plenty of benches around and so it is a great place to have lunch. If it is hot, it is good to get close to the wall and feel the cooling spray/mist coming off it, but the wet ground can be slippery so be careful.
