Attractive City Park

Interesting structure and park. It is worth seeing but I would not plan your day around it. This would be a nice reprieve from a hot Houston day.

This is a great spot for pictures. There is a field there too that is great for relaxing or having a catch. The water wall is this huge water fountain that is literally an awesome wall of water. A great place to stop by before or after shopping. Plenty of parking.

Nice comfortable walk from the Galleria Mall. Since I am not by nature a shopper and the other three are shopping animals, I needed this respite. The walk there was much better for me than walking around the Galleria.

It's a refreshing, impressive - get ready - wall of water, cascading down a concrete dam-like structure in a small park in central Houston. In a city with a paucity of interesting sites, this is a refreshing respite from the concrete surrounding the area. You can walk from the Galleria mall.

A perfect place for beautiful photos on a sunny day. Very nice place to walk around. Bring a blanket (none required) and relax on the lawn. Walk over to Mall and or Restaurants in area.

We took the short walk from galleria to see the "water wall" only to find a wall with no water, some ice along the bottom and a super bowl statue... not what we had hoped to find, disappointing seeing as the temperature was 54 so running water would not freeze 🤔

Standing right up close to the water as it crashes down in front of you is quite an experience. We try to stop by when we are close. Bring the whole family - it is takes you out of the bustle all around you in the city.

I've ridden my bike many times by the waterwall, and often stop to just listen to the water. Many times toursits were there snapping pictures, or wedding parties were taking photographs of their wedding party in front of the fountain.
