“A lovely Riverwalk”

Friendship Fountain

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We love walking along the riverwalk in Jacksonville and enjoying the revamped fountain. I even heard of someone travelling through town who stopped there and loved it so much, they moved to Jacksonville. The fountain changes with the music and lights follow. We all need to take the time to enjoy this special treat downtown. Also, love to watch from the University Club tower.

Newly redone and more beautiful. Almost makes you want to sit down and meditate it is so peaceful. Great photo ops here as well.

This is a nice location day or night. A really nice place to shoot photos of Jacksonville, fireworks, or just enjoy the day!

It is such a lovely part of Jacksonville. The fountain is particularly stunning at night. The Museum of Science and History is to the right, River City Brewing Company is to the left, the city marina is just off towards the left on the river, and downtown is directly across the river from the Fountain. It is a lovely scenic area and a nice place to walk along the river.

A great place to park and start your Loop Run of the two bridges. No bathrooms, so 4 stars. Benches to sit and relax. A nice place.
