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.

Go see it! It's an easy walk in the Galleria area. An awesome feeling to be near this massive waterfall.

If you like going to Galleria and you haven't been to the Water Wall you are missing out big time. This is a beautiful piece of architecture next a nice small park and in the spring/fall you can just spread a blanket, sit and read a book.

My favorite thing we saw in Houston. Take lunch sit in the park and enjoy the water wall and the building on the other side! Beautiful!

The water wall is located in close proximity to the Galleria mall. The water sheeting of the wall is really relaxing and very nice to look at. If you go close by for pics you get a bit sprayed by the water according to the wind angle. The Williams tower is adjacent to the water wall so this area is... More
