Fountain

Located in downtown Dayton, the Five Rivers Fountain of Lights is created by five water jets that shoot 2,500 gallons of water per minute toward the center of the river.


The powerful center geyser rises from the jets two hundred feet in the air. The fountain is equipped with directional wind sensors. If the wind is blowing in a direction and at a velocity that could interfere with area traffic or other activities, individual jets of the fountain will not operate.The fountains are on a daily run schedule operating at sixteen minute intervals. Enhancing the beauty of the fountains are stainless steel spires that are lit throughout the year by 25 "intelligent lights" that can produce an infinite variety of colors.
