Corbin Park Tower Fountain
Found: May 10, 2016
This large and impressive water feature is located next to Sprouts in Corbin Park. There is a waterfall halfway up the top part of the tower underneath the Corbin Park logo. It falls down into a pool and then down into the waterfall to the large, irregularly-shaped basin at ground level. There are sculptures of three horses with fountains in the basin, including one horse that is getting hit with a jet of water right in the mouth.
The tower is actually an elevator. There is a walkway behind the waterfall where the elevator accesses ground level. It goes up to a large deck that looks over the fountain. For those who don’t want to use the elevator, of if the elevator is out of service like it was today, there is a stairway next to the building.
I could not find any specific name for this or any of the water features in Corbin Park so the name is of my doing to differentiate the different features. If/when I find a specific name for this, I will change the title of the post accordingly.
