This is only a water wall with water (alliteration here :P) flowing down the walls and steps of the building but it's spectacular. It might seems small at first sight because of the taller surrounding buildings, but it is as high as 20 meters (about 60 ft).

In the summer there is no better thing than coming here and enjoying the cool breeze near the falling water. Walking inside is even better as the stairs and feeling the water running under your feet. These guys in Houston must know something. ;)

There is also a nice little park around the semi-circle shaped Water Wall which is great for picnics of for hanging around.

Price:
Free admission.

How to get there:
It's in the Galleria Mall area.
