Visitor Tips and News About Water Wall
The water wall wasn't running water, and there was no explanation as to why. It is somewhat difficult to find.[Globug, 11/10/2012]
Kids love this illusion of it looking like the water is flowing up.[Kim, 01/24/2010]
Amazing fountain, absolutely free and great for photos.[scott, 04/14/2009]
Designed by local architects in 1985, this unique fountain is situated in a small grassy park in Houston's busy Uptown-Galleria district. The structure is an enormous crescent-shaped wall that towers over 60 feet high and sends gallons of water cascading down into illuminated pools. Carved stairs and an archway make this a favorite place to visit for Houstonians and visitors -- and it's fabulous for photos!
There's also a great lawn surrounded by oak trees that's a lovely place to sit and admire the fountain, picturesque and amazing both day and night (and with varied effects at different times of day). The spray from the rushing water cools the surrounding air, so it's wonderful to visit when it's hot. The lighting at night makes this a romantic spot, too. Often, horse carriages may be found for hire.[Laura, 02/13/2009]
