This is a city park right on the river between two bridges and surrounding a huge decorative fountain. The park is almost directly across the river from the Landing in downtown Jacksonville. There are multiple seating benches near the fountain and a few on the river front itself. Several picnic tables were located near the riverfront for those who enjoy eating outdoors. A water taxi or river tour boat ride left from the park area for those interested in an excursion. It looked like an interesting river cruise - very relaxing! At sunset the light hitting downtown is very pretty. Parking is in a lot adjacent to the park.

If you have a chance, visit this place. Find a bench and just take in the view of the river, the fountain with changing colors, enjoy the huge shady oak trees and look out over the water. It's a nice getaway and just steps away from the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

We drove the hour from Amelia island for dinner and then a viewing of the lights at the friendship fountain. Our dinner went faster than expected, so we arrived at the fountain at 7:30. I had read in their website that starting July 1st at 8:30pm there would be,"a Fourth of July special of lights in the fountain and patriotic music. We waited for two hours until 9:30 pm and the fountain never did anything special except blue lights coming on for about 2 minutes. I was really looking forward to this and we waited for so long for nothing!

A very nice place to sit near the Riverwalk with a pretty view of St. Johns River. The fountain itself is so pretty. Good for single traveler to view and relax near or for couples to visit. Families would like it too. Really just a place to hang out. Immediate access to Riverwalk and Main St. drawbridge that one may walk over to get to Jacksonville Landing. I took the bus to this destination and only had to walk about one block to get to the fountain. Have a picnic here if you are on a budget and want to eat your own food one day of your trip. See it at lit up in the evening for a little more charm.
