Hotels near Friendship Park, Jacksonville (Florida), United States .

Friendship Park, located in Jacksonville, Florida, is the home of the famous Friendship Fountain landmark, one of the best-known of all the town's landmarks. Next to the St. Johns River and the Museum of Science and Industry, the fountain and surrounding park were the products of Taylor Hardwick, a local architect. At the time of its opening in 1965, the fountain garnered attention as the tallest and largest fountain in the world. The basin itself is 200 feet long, capable of containing 500,000 gallons of water, and is treated in compliance with the guidelines for swimming pool sanitation. The fountain was closed for renovation at the turn of the century, and re-opened with the addition of six light towers with floodlights that change colors. Visitors to the park today enjoy walking paths, family picnic areas, kite flying, biking, and other communal activities.

The park is open 24 hours a day, and admission is free.

Nearby accommodations include the Omni Jacksonville Hotel and the Marriott Hotel.
