This fountain is beautiful especially at night with all the lights. It is a great place for a date or to take the kids/grandkids. Tale a relaxing walk along the St Johns river for added scenery.

Took a friend to get some photos downtown. It was a beautiful day and we got great shots. It was no 4th of July but it was very scenic.

The fountain at night did not have any music for some reason which is lame and the fountain itself did not go up and down with the music for some reason

This is a nice walk with big views! Enjoyed the constant breeze from the river on such a hot day. Walking with family was nice but this would also be a nice couples activity.

This is a really neat area. There was no color on the fountain when we went but it was still really cool.

Great area to walk around. It was close to MOSH (museum of science & health). We were there during the day, it's probably beautiful at night.

When we visited it wasn't working. I'd call jacksonville city parks and rec and find out if it's operational and reserve the time then. Keep in mind, it may be hard to hear the ceremony over the noise of the fountain if it... More
