I thought it was worth the visit. I wouldn't travel far for it, but while I was in Jacksonville I checked it out and thought it was worth finding! Between the fountain itself and the views along the river, it is beautiful.

This is a great place to come and visit. The area is nice and well taken care of. The city has recently renovated the park. Check out one of the night shows. They draw performers.

This is a great place for a nice walk on the river, or for photography, or for just relaxing looking of downtown Jacksonville. I lived in Jacksonville area for 18 years and this was one of my favorite places to relax.

I enjoyed the fountain and the nice walk along the river. The fountain is beautiful and a great backdrop for photos. Picnic table allowed us to enjoy a snack under the trees.

The Friendship Fountain was an interesting historical and beautiful side trip while visiting MOSH. The panoramic view of Jacksonville is amazing. Grandkids enjoyed putting pennies in the fountain and making wishes.

Daytime visit was just OK. There is nothing really special about this fountain during the day. It is a little better at night when the lights are working and the city is all lit up. It does offer a nice view of the city and...More
