21 Mar Freedom Fountain in Jacksonville
The Freedom Fountain is located at New Bridge Street and Johnson Boulevard which happens to be the gateway to downtown Jacksonville. The fountain honors all those who have served and are serving the United States of America. Freedom Fountain features 54 jets and was designed with thought and beautiful attention to detail. With each jet and its cascading stream of water, the 50 continental United States are represented along with three branches of government and the single larger stream that jets out with amazing power represents freedom.
When standing next to this stunning representation in commemoration of those who are serving and who have served this beautiful country, the sound of the falling water can reach 90 decibels. In the evening the fountain is lit with a red, white, and blue glow. Surely this patriotic tribute is a site to be seen.
