A very nice place to sit near the Riverwalk with a pretty view of St. Johns River. The fountain itself is so pretty. Good for single traveler to view and relax near or for couples to visit. Families would like it too. Really just a place to hang out. Immediate access to Riverwalk and Main St. drawbridge that one may... More

Lovely to see during the day and went back again at night when it was all lit up with different colors.

The fountain has been redone if you havent seen it in a while. Just a visual thing, not a fountain the kids can get wet in. Beautiful scenery. New lights, benches, etc. It's a great spot directly next to the Main Street Bridge on the Southbank of Downtown Jax. You can catch a water taxi from The Landing across the... More

This little park was a very pleasant surprise as we walked from our hotel to dinner at a nearby restaurant. It is not large but has some very pleasant trees with shaded areas and wonderfully large, for the size of the park, fountains. A good place to catch your breath, enjoy the fresh air and admire the skyline across the... More

This is one of my families top places to show visitors as the fountain is really neat and the views across the river can't be beat.

Very beautiful! My sister and I walked along the river walk and really enjoyed seeing the fountain. The colors on it at night are also awesome! This is a very nice park area with lots of seating, trails, and just beautiful views of the river. Take your family and enjoy the day.

This is a great place to take pics. The fountain is very nice. We didn't get a chance to see it at night, however, during the day is a good opportunity to take pics. There are benches around to sit and watch the water, if that is what you are in to. If in the downtown area, take time to... More

The renovation has left it in beautiful condition. At night the color changing lights are beautiful! Love going down and taking pictures in front of it!

This is a cool place to make a stop and check out for a few minutes. Not only did we get to see it up close, but our hotel room across the water had a spectacular view of it. I was mesmerized by it at night and spent lots of time watching it while perched in the window. Must see... More
