Gerald D. Hines Waterwall

waterwall-1For a taste of tranquility, peace and quiet you don’t need to look far from the hustle and bustle of The Galleria. The Gerald D. Hines Waterwall, or as locals simply call it, The Waterwall, is a city icon located in a quiet park just steps from The Galleria, a Houston landmark in itself. Designed and completed in 1985 by architect Philip Johnson, The Waterwall is a 64-foot wall of continuously flowing water.

In addition to its relaxing environment, it’s the perfect place for people watching. You’ll see everything from people posing for Quinceañera and prom pictures to kids tossing a football. Our advice, contrary to TLC’s – DO go chasing water walls.waterwall-2 waterwall-3 waterwall-4Insider’s Guide

• When the sun goes down this place is a popular date spot.
• There are a few benches on the outskirts of the park, but we recommend bringing a blanket and enjoying the sun. Just don’t forget the sunscreen!
