The fountain is beautiful regardless what time of year. It’s always glows festive colors. Great place to just relax and watch the view.

You see this in pictures all the time. It looks great in a screen shot but its even more beautiful at street level. There seems to be a breeze that comes across the fountains

Although pretty by day I think it would look pretty amazing at night. It is right by the Museum of Science and History so if you're heading there I would check it out. There were a few roadworks in Jacksonville when we were there so...More

This is a must see as you walk along St John's river and was right across the street from our hotel (Doubletree) so we had a great view from our patio (4th floor) as well. I saw quite a few people running/walking there during the...More
