Bowling Green, KY
The interactive fountain in Circus Square Park can create an impressive variety of display effects. The fountain is 40-feet in diameter with three zones of animation, making it the park’s premiere draw for summertime fun. The historic 3.5-acre park, used in the 1800s for circus performances, is now the venue for concerts, festivals, and community events. The park is seen as the cornerstone for future downtown redevelopment.
Delta Fountains provided 24 custom fiberglass discharge sumps with animated pop jet nozzles and 18-inch bronze grates. The jets are individually animated. A variable frequency drive allows for varying jet display heights between zero and 10 feet during the animation sequence.
The seat wall surrounding the dry-deck portion of the feature also includes eight display sumps. The wall jets arch towards the center of the feature. Another element of the Circus Square feature located outside the ring of pop jets is a 30- by 30-inch sump with a 24-inch grate housing four laminar flow nozzles. With a maximum throw of 13 feet, these jets shoot towards the center of the fountain.
