This fountain is located in Grant Park and is quite hard to miss, so do come and have a look if you are near since it is free to see. Unfortunately when we came, the fountain was not turned on. The fountain operates from 8:00am - 11:00pm from mid-April to mid-October with regular water shows (every hour on the hour for about 20 minutes) and evening coloured-light shows after dusk.

Some interesting stats, the center jet shoots water vertically to 150 ft (46 m). It contains 1,500,000 gallons (5,700,000 litres) of water. During the water show, more than 14,000 gallons of water is shot through the jets per minute.
Come back next Friday for another Past Point of Interest.
