Been here several times over the last few years. Tourists always want to see the place for some reason. After the first time it loses most of its appeal... Ultimately it's something between an oversized water fountain and a mini-golf waterfall, too loud and crowded to meditate& and not impressive enough to hold attention. If you have ten minutes and...

We made this a stop on our drive into Houston as a good chance to get out in the fresh air. We arrived and....NO WATER! Appeared they were cleaning or repairing. I would recommend if it is going to be closed that they update the website with maintenance hours. We weren't hugely disappointed but would have loved to see the... More

As an oasis of waterfall sounds and scenic variation for people who work in the area, this must be great. It's not a destination.

Very relaxing and the mist of the waterwall was exciting. Good for walks and taking.breaks. Near the Galleria Mall which was awesome and very upscale.

We parked for free in the Galleria Parking Garage near Macy's, walked to the park at dusk and watched how different the Water Wall looked from daylight to nighttime lights. It was beautiful and mesmerizing. The mist covers you when you are within the arch. There are many people there, but it still feels intimate.

We love to picnic in the grass in front of the water. Always so pleasant with lots of families around. The water is amazing and can be quite mesmerizing. Something fun and different for no money :)

This is a very large Modern Art structure to complement the Galleria area - a large and tall wall with water cascading down to form a large water wall.

A very cool architecture with a huge water wall feature. Very relaxing at the end of a green field, opposite from the tall Williams Tower. It's very windy and wet if you are standing very close to the water wall, which I can imagine it to be very nice during hot summer days. Nothing else to see here except the... More
