So so thing to do in the morning. The walk the area was nice with scenic riverside views. The fountain itself was a disappointment, not worth a special trip but if in the area worth it.

My husband and I visited two days ago and were so disappointed. This is the most pitiful fountain we have ever seen. We drove almost 25 minutes to get here as it was listed as the most recognizable attraction in Jacksonville and figured we had...More

Not only was the fountain not lit up at night, but during the day the fountain wasn't doing much. You can walk there across the bridge or take the free monorail.

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.

The fountain has been beautifully structured in front of MOSH and attracted the visitor. The side corridors are suitable for walking and good sight scenery. It can be easily accessed by walking on the 'John T Alsop Jr' bridge originating the 'Jacksonville Landing'. It is...More

If planning a weekend visit, go earlier in the day. You can dine across the way at the Jacksonville Landing and hang out until sunset. It really is beautiful all lit up at night.
