Friendship Fountain is in the St. Johns River Park along the riverwalk. It's adjacent to the Museum of Science and History. It's one of the largest self-contained fountains. We sort of stumbled upon it while we were doing the riverwalk. It would be the perfect...More

Located in a busy part of town, this was a great fountain. We didn't go at night, but I bet it would have been 10x better.Free parking is under a interstate located near the fountain.

It all comes down to when you visit Friendship Fountain. I have been there numerous times where it is positively gorgeous and with the backdrop of the St. Johns River and downtown Jax, simply amazing. However, other times i have visited it has been merely...More

Visiting from Midwest. Irritated to have made the trip downtown to find the Friendship Fountain turned off. No information available onsite, nor online at the city website, as to the reason this "Jacksonville Gem" was not working. Asked people in the area to no avail....More

It’s beautiful day or night. It’s a perfect area for a walk in the sun with a nice scenery. Only for those who appreciate the value of simple things.

My fiancé and I took pictures for our engagement. The scenery was beautiful and the weather was nice. Enjoyed looking at the river and the people enjoying their day. Relaxing evening.

Wonderful assortment of lights, colors and programming. Always fun to see the fountain on full display, especially at time of big events like fireworks. If downtown, its worth a trip to see it and admire the water display.
