Long Description:
Previously located at 3rd Street and Wesley Way and utilized as an animal watering fountain, this city landmark was moved to Cook Park, a Sioux City park named after the community’s founder. The fountain has four lion carvings, one on each side of the square center. It is designed so that water spills out from each of the lion mouths and into a large concrete basin. There is a plaque on the side that reads: 1911, Presented by the National Humane Alliance, Hermon Lee Ensign, Founder.

The park can be found on 4th Street between Main and Market Streets, and the fountain is in the southwest corner near the bus stop. The fountain is turned off during the winter months but can be enjoyed the rest of the year.
