The Friendship Fountain is a newly renovated, very large fountain, landmark at the Southbank Riverwalk, Downtown, Jacksonville. Designed by architect Taylor Hardwick and opened in 1965. Includes grassy areas, picnic tables, the Boardwalk along the St. Johns River, water taxi's, the Maritime Museum, shows and events!
On any day you can visit the fountain, let the kids run and play, have a picnic in the grass or at nearby picnic tables, take a walk along the Riverwalk, and even take a Water Taxi round-trip or stop at the Landing for an event, Lunch, Dinner, shopping, you name it!
Friendship fountain also has it's own schedule of events that include light and water displays set to music!
We really enjoy it and just recently visited after dinner with our extended family. Were rained out, and even loved that! Running around the fountain for cover, getting soaked, big smiles and laughing the whole time. Priceless!!
