“Very impressive civic structure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We were there on a cool day in March so the mist from the wall wasn't quite as welcomed as it would have been in August. However, this is a very impressive structure. Is just a block away from The Galleria shopping center. There is a very nice green space in front of it where people sit and enjoy the weather.

There were a number of kids playing in the mist and people getting wedding photos. I would highly recommend this as a quick and free attraction to visit. Enjoy!

“Quite a site in the middle of Houston”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

My son took us to the Water Wall as a way of showing us some of the nuances of Houston. This is a man made feature that provides a cool mist on hot days. The sound of the falling water is relaxing. This is a public area so no fees. It is cool to see and enjoy.

“Love the wall...but.......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

what's with the arched free standing building in front of it? This is an interesting addition to the Gallaria Shopping District in Houston. While visiting we saw many families taking photos together. Sweet spot. The rush of water, the entire wall is mesmorizing. So I repeat........what's with the free standing arched wall in front of it?
