A City Welcoming

The Walnut Street fountains and stairs, with two large, cascading waterfeatures and more than 100 LED lights, mark the park’s entryway. The steps are anchored by three elevated glass observation stands, each with its own LED-lit water curtain to present a unique illuminated effect. The lights are programmed to sync with music and often have a theme. On Cincinnati Reds’ game days, for example, the features turn red and white.

The interactive waterfeatures are equipped with deck-level vertical spray nozzles that have LED lighting to entertain child visitors.

Say the designers: “The fountains had to be able to withstand the harsh Ohio winters. They were designed to be institutional and last more than 50 years. Some of the features fall within the 100-year flood level, and this required additional coordination with the Army Core of Engineers.”
