A nice place to relax and reflect. There are also a number of joggers and walkers that frequent the area during the day. While we were there a number of school buses loaded with children stopped by for a visit of the park. The Science museum is right behind the fountain so if you can enjoy two sites at the... More

Very beautiful view of the fountain close to St John's river and bridges make this place awesome. At night the fountain is lighted and the change of light color makes it spellbinding.

Perhaps this had historical significance for the area that we were not aware of, it is a nice way to view the Jacksonville Landing across the river walk. Interesting but not much else around to dedicate a day unless you simply happen to be in the area.

It is pretty, and HUGE. It's nice to see but really. It's just a fountain! You can see the other side of the river and the bridge and looks nice for photos :)

Nice urban fountain with colored shooting sprays. A good thing for a large city to have. Nothing spectacular in our opinion, but nice.

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.
