The Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park, formerly the Williams Waterwall and the Transco Waterwall, is a multi-story sculptural fountain that sits opposite the south face of Williams Tower in the Uptown District of Houston. The fountain and its surrounding park were built as an architectural amenity to the adjacent tower. Both the fountain and tower were designed by John Burgee Architects with Philip Johnson. Originally privately owned in common with the office tower, the waterwall and the surrounding land were purchased by the Uptown Houston Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone, a non-profit local government corporation, in 2008 to ensure the long term preservation of the waterwall and park. The fountain currently operates between 10 am and 9 pm.

A Man made waterfall but a huge a beautiful place to spend some quality time. you will be amused to see how this place can recycle 11000 gallons/sec of water. Inside was decorated like a stadium which attracts a lot of people. May be in the evening the lighting need to be made more bright. Overall a nice place. beware of the parking place, as there is no nearby parking available. Also the constructions currently is hectic so look for the proper route.
This was my first time here and I loved it especially in October since the weather was not too hot nor too cold. I want to visit here during the scorching summer times just to get a feel of the place. Great place for a walk with someone or your pet, take a scenic run, just to chill and have a reflective life moment or even to cry if you’re bold enough for the attention. I hear someone proposed there as well. It is a great place to visit. If you get a chance do it. Besides the Galleria is just right there, if you have extra cash to spend or maybe when visiting the Galleria come check it out.
Had no idea this place existed, was suggested by out-of-town friend, but it was definitely made the trip worth it. Artistic, calming, and fun. I can easily see why Family's would bring their kids here during the summer or anytime of the year really. It is a lot of fun, wear something you don't mind getting wet. There is a garage less than a block away that doesn't charge too much or you could always try to find parking. There is currently construction going on around the area so it can be a little difficult to maneuver around but still worth it. The park or open space in front of the waterfall is great for a picnic so if you have the chance definitely do it.
Stunning is the word. Such a beautiful structure it's a photographer's delight. If the lighting is perfect the pictures come out wonderful. There is a parking garage where you can park for a cheaper price right across the street.
This place was so awesome! The waterfalls were beautiful and way cooler than I expected. Then we went around the corner, saw the inside, and were blown away again. Just wow. Would love to come back here!
The structure was impressive and definitely worth seeing as a tourist attraction, but at the end of the day it’s just a big fountain, and the “park” itself isn’t really a park. It’s a long grassy space with the fountain at one end and a tall building on the other. It would probably work for hanging out or reading. But if you are looking for an actual park outing with some walking or play areas, this isn’t the best place to go. I also ended up paying for a parking garage because I wasn’t sure where to park the car.
Lots of water. The place to go to take pics in Houston. Nice trees. Good place to chill for a few minutes. Peaceful amidst the construction. Would visit again
Wonderful place to visit especially with visitors from out of town. One of Houston’s most unique places and a great place for pictures. The park is big with plenty of space for kids to run and play. There’s also shade in the trees on both sides. The water-wall is one-of-a-kind and if you stand in the middle of the water and look up you’ll feel as if you’re flying. There’s a big parking garage nearby and rates are reasonable. Overall a good place to hang out on a nice day and to cool off the Houston heat.
Good for a short, simple, relaxing visit, selfies, friends, couples, & family pictures. This is a top 15 spot in Houston located near the Galleria. A 60 foot tall, about 30 foot radius, half circle, fountain wall that creates wonderful white noise & light mist. You can walk to near the inside wall. The back side is a more subdued fountain. In front are Roman Theater Arches & a grass green space. Located at the 64 Story Williams Tower (Alabama & Post Oak). Observation deck now permanently closed.
Nice calm place for picnics. Children can run around and play. great place to take pictures. Avoid coming on days after rain as there are muddy puddles. No free parking, but can park at the William's tower parking
Awesome place to visit. It recycles 11,000galwater/sec. Amazing job on the project whoever worked on the project. Park itself is very big considering it’s in downtown Houston. Plenty of space to bring your pets. I think this water park one of the unique places to visit when you are in Houston. Lot of people are doing photo shoots for graduations or sweet sixteen. Many people were visiting with their families. There were enough benches to sit on. You can also sit on grass. Both sides of the water wall has water flowing but inside was the most spectacular!! Be careful with all the construction going on in that area. Most likely you will have to park in paid parking garage near water park but it wasn’t very expensive.
Saw a proposal here. Very cool! Also refreshing. 65 feet tall and 11000 gallons of water a minute! Crazy stuff going on and fun to see

Nice place for a picture. Lawn is well manicured but the big kicker... There is no free parking adjacent! Paid parking garages but not worth it for a photo. Have someone wait in the car and snap a few photos. Great design, not ideal for casual passersby
I was amazed how such a simple idea when you think about it could be such an inspiring place... water simply falling down a wall on to steps creating an ambience as though in a rainforest is ingenious... It was well worth the trouble to find a park and visit .. Well done
