Clyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas gets a great gift for the holidays – the tallest interactive fountain in the world.
Park President Kit Sowers told NBC5 that the interactive “Super Fountain” can throw water jets up to 95 feet into the air and up to 100 feet of water column.
The park announced a $ 10 million Christmas present from park board member Nancy Best and her husband Randy in a Thursday morning news release.
The fountain was designed by Los Angeles-based Fluity Design Consultants and will be located at the Pearl Street entrance to the park.
A central island with three stainless steel “trees” will be on display here, with water pulse and jet from it. At the bottom of the fountain is a shallow, “highly reflective” splash pool. At night, there will be colorful light shows in the fountain with fountains integrated with music.
“The only way to describe this fountain is amazing,” Jodie Grant, board chairman of the Woodall Rogers Park Foundation, said in a news release. “It simply came to our notice then. When we look at the future sky photos of Dallas, we firmly believe that this is the ‘blimp shot’ you see. It is a signature structure that entertains children during the day and entertains visitors at night with a beautiful show reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower light show in Paris. ”
“Clyde Warren Park is a loving endeavor for Randy and me,” Nancy Best said. “It’s a great honor and privilege to make this gift, whether it’s a donation, a volunteer, or a random act of kindness. We hope others will do their best.
Construction will begin in the summer of 2021 and is expected to be completed by December.
