Long Description:
In the 1960s, the city constructed a fountain in honor of Louise Dillingham, who served many years as a member of the former City Parks Board. (reportedly, the Walter and Louise Dillingham Foundation gave the fountain to the city in 1966.)

Her husband Walter Dillingham is known for the huge changes he made to Honolulu's landscape – which included draining Waikiki’s wetlands, dredging the Ala Wai Canal and filling in Waikiki’s wetlands.

Today the fountain at Kapiolani Park has become a popular resting spot for joggers and a regular backdrop for photos.

The Dillingham Fountain has also served in scenes in prior Hawaii Five-O episodes.
