“Relaxing and Beautiful”

Friendship Fountain
Ranked #15 of 175 things to do in Jacksonville
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 March 2014

When I saw a video from a friend, it looked like a small fountain. However, when I saw it last week, it was the largest fountain I've seen, and it was just wonderful to sit by to relax. The colors change, there are several spouts for fountains, there is covered and uncovered seating, and you can lean right up against the edge to watch the water.

I made a point to walk across the Main St bridge to go visit the Friendship Fountain because I read reviews that it was stunning. It was a nice fountain but there wasn't anything special about it and it wasn't all that large.
My recommendation was don't make a special trip just for it, but enjoy it from the northside of the river (it is located on the southside) as it looks better from afar.

Came down to Jacksonville with some friends and we stopped by the Friendship Fountain and strolled around a bit. Lovely fountain colors at night and a great place to sit, talk and enjoy some time with friends. The view of the river and bridges surrounding the area was also a plus!

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.
