We went to the fountain during the day;It looks like a plain large fountain to me with water shooting out - no colors . There are benches to sit on and the background is the riverfront walk with a view across the river. Not much more to do at the fountain except walk around it or sit on one of... More

The riverfront walk on the Southbank is one of Jacksonville's best kept secrets. Plus it is free. A mile and a half of great views which includes the beautiful a friendship Fountain. Take the time to walk this gem.

I grew up in Jacksonville and always make a point to visit Frienship Fountain when I am in town. It still provides a beautiful view across the river and the walk is peaceful. Worth the effort.

It is amazing just how quiet it is around the fountain, even during the busiest part of the day. At night, the colors are soothing. You can see how much the park is used, yet the people respect it and keep it clean. A great place to workout, read, or just relax.

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
