Long Description:
On a hot day one feels cooler just by looking at this fountain. It consists of a 50 to 60 foot vertical jet and several jets aimed to the side. Beautiful as it is to gaze upon, the park has much more to offer than just this fountain.

McGuire Lake Park is a very beautiful park with walking trails and seasonal fountain in the middle of the lake. You can walk around the entire lake where large areas of lily pads are showing off their gorgeous flowers in the summer. There are ducks and painted turtles basking in the sun, we found near the lily pads.

If you take the south walkway there is a very nice Japanese Friendship Gate with an interesting Hands of Friendship petrosomatoglyph of some of the original gate builders near the gate.

You can relax and enjoy the views from numerous benches, most dedicated, and picnic tables to enjoy a pleasant afternoon with family and friends. There are also large grassy areas along the pathways and large trees provide shade from the sun.

This is a popular site for weddings and other family gatherings.
