Fountain Background
By day, the Fountain is an interactive play area for families and a relaxing respite in the heart of Dallas. It features a 5,000-square-foot splash pad, which can accommodate hundreds of children at a time.

Each night, the Fountain comes alive with dancing water and a choreographed light and music show. PERFORMANCES AFTER SUNSET ARE ILLUMINATED. Guests are encouraged to play in the water—even during the evening performances—making it one of the most unique fountains in the world.

Like all fountains in the Park, the Nancy Best Fountain is powered by recirculated water, which goes through a continuous filtration and sanitizing process.

Fluidity Design Consultants, the firm behind the Park’s other water features, created the Nancy Best Fountain. The design was inspired by the beloved green space, with three 15-foot stainless-steel “trees,” 14 “rosebud” bubblers, and 106 small nozzles that create giant “leaves” when they are working in unison. In addition to Fluidity, Bjerke Management Solutions, McCarthy Building Companies, and Jacobs comprised the leadership team for this project. The stunning trees were fabricated locally by Big D Metalworks.

In addition to the Fountain, guests are invited to enjoy the large green space, free games and the Park’s bistro tables and chairs—perfect for indulging in La Parada cocktails or a food truck supper. Restrooms are also available.
