Water Wall, Houston

#2 of 24 in Nature in Texas Gulf Coast
Waterfall · Landmark
Standing more than 18 m (60 ft) tall, Water Wall recirculates more than 4,000 li (1,057 gal) of water per minute. The architecture of the wall behind the water features a semicircle with water cascading down the structure's inner and outer walls. Be sure to step inside, where the deafening roar provides another perspective of this centerpiece of the city's business center. There is no fee to visit the wall, but be mindful of posted opening and closing hours. To avoid parking fees, park your car at the nearby mall for free and walk over. A visit to Water Wall represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Houston trip itinerary site to plot your vacation.

  • Very unique waterfall . Good spot for photos and to cool off in the mist. Space to picnic or stretch your legs on the lawn. Parking is confusing as it all says tow zone but people are risking it...  more »
  • A beautiful water feature in the city that offers a great spot to cool off in the midst. You'll find a parking structure nearby with a reasonable price, for a city. You really should make this a stop....  more »
  • Just love this place. Its even more beautiful than when I used to visit as a child... I loved it then and I love it now. Its peaceful and makes for excellent photo opportunities. I can't wait to go back.
  • Beautiful & alluring ...☀🦋 You don't fully notice it's beauty until you finally walk inside, and gaze up at the water effortlessly falling from what seems like an infinity drop. Be mindful that the mist will damp your clothes & hair , but nothing major at all. Close to public transit so it's accessible to EVERYONE! Right around the corner from the Galleria Mall. Definitely bring your camera/phone, because you wouldn't want to miss a moment of it. I photographed a wedding here once, & it was amazing. A place for peace, family, love, & gatherings. Perfect for a lunch date 😘🌻 One of Houstons Top 10 landmarks to visit for sure!
