It is in Texas, but you don't have the right movie or actor or town yet. The actor now plays mature parts, but played a child then.

It's in Las Cruces. The roadrunner, official state bird of New Mexico. It was made out of trash at the city dump, then moved to a rest area west of Las Cruces.

The protocol here is to have one challenge going at a time, and the person getting the right answer gets to pose the next one. Not trying to be nazis about it, but the thread becomes very confusing if there are clues and guesses being thrown around for several different pictures. But glad to have you aboard and playing.

Let me review the clues. There is a conspicuous feature in the picture, that was a significant scene in a film, involving a child character played by an actor who has been nominated for three Oscars (including that film). The place is in Texas, where the film was shot, but the movie story line was set in Iowa.

Here's another view, maybe this will help:

OK, you got the right film. But the filming location (and the water tower) is in another town not far from Austin.

The town. Shooting locations can be found in the film credits on IMDB. Or you can google what you already know, to find additional matching images.
