Central Park Interactive Fountain

Subfacility of Central Park

Admission Fee

Free Admission

The interactive fountain is a 2,100 square feet plaza with 49 jet sprays and 18 arching sprays.

Fountain water is recycled through a filtration system and the water is reused, just like in a swimming pool, and beautiful LED lights turn the fountain into a light show once the sun goes down.

It's free to play in the fountain, children and the young at heart are all welcome. You'll find restrooms inside the park building.
