Stopped by for a quick visit and found it to be a beautiful location. Not enough time to enjoy the boat ride across the river/canal/?. Seemed peaceful and found many tourists walking the area.

This is a beautiful area of Jacksonville. The fountain is right opposite the JAX Landing and can be walked to. The adjacent bridge, the architecture, river and the over landscape is very scenic We went early in the evening and were there until we could see the fountain with lights. Good place for everyone to hang out including Kids.

This fountain is beautiful, with the views of Jacksonville behind it. I got engaged at this fountain after an exciting day. The blue skyline was a wonderful backdrop for the pictures! If you're willing to walk over the bridge, it's a short walk to some cute shopping and eating places.

we took the free skyway to get to this fountain..... pretty with nice news of the river.... absolutely nothing nearby.... we walked and looked for restauants and ended up taking the skyway across the river to the landing to eat... was not really worth the trip to the fountain.... although we liked the skyway and the views from it......

This was an absolutely beautiful area of Jacksonville. The fountain, bridge, architecture, river and landscaping were gorgeous.

This is really best viewed and appreciated at night with the lights! During the day is pretty with the Jacksonville skyline and right on the river, but no lights and just like a big fountain.

This review is of Friendship Fountain, and the attractions connected to it. First off the fountain is beautiful during the day, but spectacular t night. I would recommend combining a trip to Museum of Science and History (They are right beside each other) with the fountain. Then take a stroll on the Riverwalk which is also connected to the fountain.... More

It's really large and pretty. Great spot to sit and enjoy the view. Not much else to do around it and parking is tough
