Gift of Life Fountain
Found: September 21, 2013
On the west side of the Stowers Institute sits this complex and multi-featured fountain. There are fountains, waterfalls, a simulated rapids running through a walking path, a sculpture, an outdoor shelter at the top and pools. The water starts at the top with 5 fountains, cascades down a couple of water falls and then spreads down to the outer reaches of the fountain pools. There is a stone pedestal with the sculpture called “Joie de Vivre” on top of it that is actually a fountain as water flows out the top of the pedestal. The last fountain is in the far west pool.
Easily the most pictures I have taken at one location.
