At its peak, the fountain can shoot water up to 120 feet into the air, creating a spectacular display visible from miles away. The fountain’s design includes 265 lights that illuminate the water jets at night, creating a mesmerizing visual effect.

Surrounded by a scenic park and offering panoramic views of the river and downtown skyline, Friendship Fountain provides a serene and picturesque setting for relaxation and appreciation of the city’s beauty. As a symbol of Jacksonville’s unity and a popular gathering spot for locals and tourists alike, it holds a special place in the hearts of those who visit.
