Splash Fountain opening at Zoo Atlanta on July 4

The new interactive water attraction, sponsored by the Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority on the grounds of Zoo Atlanta, will be free with general admission. It will offer visitors an entertaining break as they enjoy the Zoo’s naturalistic habitats, keeper talks, animal training demonstrations, wildlife shows and other daily activities.

“We’re delighted about opening the Splash Fountain this summer," said Raymond B. King, president and CEO. "Zoo Atlanta enjoys a reputation as an outstanding family destination, and this feature will give our members and guests yet another fun reason to visit, play, and explore the Zoo."

The experience will feature a total of 18 water jets on interactive pads on a 2,500 square-foot section of the Zoo’s KIDZone rides and attractions area. The Splash Fountain will be open seasonally from April to October, weather permitting.
