This is by far my favorite fountain bar none. It is wonderful to sit by it dur9ing the day and look across the river to the city. My children love the dancing water by day and it is the one perfect place to take a date for a romantic end to an evening. The skyline is beautiful and the bridges... More

Its a good place for a nice evening walk. You can walk around and chill around the fountain as well as take the riverwalk and enjoy the downtown Jacksonville and St John's river view.

I go here often for various reasons. The fountain itself is nice--they recently renovated it. There's a great view of the city (it's on the river in the downtown area). Parking is horrible--as it is throughout the downtown area. On a busy day there just isn't any parking. More importantly, there just isn't much of anything to do in the... More

The fountain is absolutely beautiful at night. I love that you can take water taxi's across from one side to the other.

The view looking out at night across the river is gorgeous. The fountain itself was lit up beautifully, although one of the fountains didn't seem to be working. Along the riverwalk had a really pretty mosaic design and was lit up at night as well. I really wanted to come here during the day as well but didn't get the... More

This is located on the riverfront directly in front of MOSH. The fountains are pretty cool. There is a small park with picnic tables. Watch for dolphins swimming by in the river. You can catch the downtown ferry here for a trip around downtown Jax.

The fountain is breathtaking any season, any weather, and with any sky. Colors change for a variety of reasons. The water is very clean and rises high above your head against the backdrop of the downtown Jax skyline. The location is easy to reach downtown and adds a beautiful touch to the downtown landscape.

This is something in town that is nice to see and makes for some beautiful pictures. This is a popular spot for prom pictures and they do not disappoint. It's right along the St. Johns River and you have a beautiful view of downtown Jacksonville.
