go just before sunset for a picknick and you will enjoy a great view. The cornish is now clean and pleasant with good facilities. A great place for walking and using a few calories.

The pump of this fountain is one of 26 pumps bought by the Late King Faisal for Egypt to be used in destroying the sand barrier in Sinai, Egypt during the 1973 war. For the purpose of secrecy, King Faisal bought it and shipped it to Egypt. This had a great impact in winning the war.

I like to stare at the fountain, the water splashing to the highest point and free fall looks soothing for some reason, a good place to just relax and unwind solo, or enjoy it with someone or two.. have fun!
