The interactive water feature in the Lakeside area of Prospect Park is located next to the skating ring. The water feature is a large, circular splash area surrounded by a granite wall with arching jets that face inward. This is a hot spot for New York families to cool off in the summer, and has been featured on websites like Mommy Poppins NY and Curbed NY.

Lakeside Prospect Park Water Feature

Delta Fountains was called on to design the mechanical drawing and manufacture the nozzles to create the arching jets desired by the fountain designer. The large splash area is surrounded by a granite wall with 41 smooth bore jets cascading into the middle of the feature. The jets are programmed to work as one, ramping up and down, or separately. They are covered by custom faceplates to protect the fountain nozzles and to protect the children from getting their fingers caught.
