Description

In the median of Shoal Creek Parkway just north of NE 87th Street and a few blocks north of Highway 152 sits this fountain.  The fountain features three large saucers composed of what looks like giant, overlapping leaves.  Water shoots out of the top in four directions into the top saucer and the water makes its way through the gaps between the leaves down to the pool below.

The rectangular pool is approximately 40 feet long and is bordered by cut limestone blocks.  The pool is flanked on the east and west by landscaping, usually plants and flowers, creating the garden.  The entire pool and garden are surrounded by a border made of stone blocks.
