The two RV Gypsies
explored Fountain Park
300 East Main Street
in Rock Hill, SC
August 17, 2018

Fountain Park is a Community area with a lawn, an outdoor performance venue, plus a circular fountain with an illuminated, interactive water jet display. It is located adjacent to the intersections of Saluda Street, East Main Street, Elizabeth Lane, and East Black Street.

The fountain reaches a height over 100 feet in the air. The fountain is a 90 ft. x 70 ft. modified quatrefoil design with 16 inches of water depth. The recirculating fountain holds approximately 50,000 gallons of water with 16 feature pumps totaling 318 horsepower.

There are 144 jets in five nozzle groups, all of which are governed by an anemometer to limit heights in windy conditions. The center nozzle sprays up to 100 feet in height, using 1,000 gallons of water. If all nozzles run as high as possible, the recirculating fountain will put 10,000 gallons of water in the air per minute.

Wading is NOT permitted in the fountain.
