Thanks to a $10 million donation from local benefactors Nancy and Randy Best, a one-of-a-kind interactive fountain will be added to Klyde Warren Park near downtown Dallas.
Park President Kit Sawers says the attraction designed by Los Angeles-based Fluidity will be the world's tallest, interactive, next-generation fountain.
Accented by high-tech lighting and music, it will have the capability to make water "dance" more than 100 feet in the air. And, at the base of the fountain, children will be able to play in the shallow reflective pool.
Sawers said the fountain is being fast-tracked and will be complete by Dec. 2021.
“The only way to describe this fountain is spectacular,” said Jody Grant, chairman of the board of the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation. “It will truly be unlike anything seen before. When you look at aerial photos of Dallas in the future, we firmly believe this is the ‘blimp shot’ you will see. It will be a signature structure that by day beckons children at play and by night delights visitors with a spectacular show, reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower light show in Paris.”
