Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park at Williams Tower – Visiting Houston’s Parks, One Week at a Time

Williams Tower Water Wall
Address: 2800 S. Post Oak Boulevard in the Galleria

In the middle of the busy Galleria is a 64 foot tall wall of water. Across from the Galleria’s tallest building, William’s Tower, is Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park.

Williams Tower Houston Galleria
The park has a big green space, framed with Texas Live Oaks and benches.  The waterwall is the star attraction and kids can stand in the semicircle and feel like they’re at the bottom of a waterfall.  If there is a breeze, the kids get a little shower as they enjoy their surroundings.

This park does not have a playground, but is a great place for a picnic.  The kids can run through the grass and let their imaginations run wild at the waterwall.

Williams Tower Parking Garage
The only thing tricky with this park is parking.  The Galleria Mall Nordstrom parking garage is a block away and is free.  A closer option is the Williams Tower parking garage, with starts at $3 for 30 minutes.

Still, if you haven’t been to the park, make the trip to see it.  Bring the stroller so you can park a little distance away, and enjoy Houston’s 64 foot water wall!

Our Review: In the Galleria, across from The Williams Tower and connected to a large green space and Texas live oaks, is the 64 foot tall Water Wall. The wall of water is huge, loud and a great spot to check out.

 

I parked at in the Nordstrom’s parking garage at The Galleria Mall and my kids and I walked across the empty lot to the park. I told my kids it was a big water surprise and the park did not disappoint.

 

 

My kids stood in the semi-circle of water and were amazed. They thought it was great fun to run around in the mist. My son, sometimes known as Diego, pretended he was at a huge waterfall and he was rescuing animals.

 

This park is great for a little adventure with the kids and would make a fun picnic location.   We plan to check it out at night time when it is all lit up.  I hear it is very romantic and a lot of marriage proposals happen there.  Maybe my husband should come along…
