Myriad Botanical Gardens Oklahoma Opens Children’s Fountain

17 Apr

A new attraction is set to open in arguably the most beautiful garden in Oklahoma City. The Myriad Botanical Gardens will soon open a huge interactive fountain for children. The new children’s fountain will resemble a storm cycle complete with a spray-ground feature.

The Myriad Botanical Gardens have been an attraction in downtown Oklahoma City since 1988. Located at 301 W. Reno Avenue, the beautiful garden stands on a 17-acre piece of land that offers a beautiful and serene oasis in the middle of the city with abundant trees and exotic plants. It also features a degree of an animal reserve, as well as additional rare plant species, contained within the artificial biosphere – the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory.

The new interactive fountain is made to resemble a storm cycle with its mosaic blue cloud sculpture. The pillar that holds the clouds resemble tornadoes while the sculpture features flash outward like lightning, large sprays boom like thunder and several drizzle features represent a heavy rain storm.  The cycle runs for approximately 15 minutes at which point all of the remaining water is sprayed on the ground.
