Clarence F. Buckingham Memorial Fountain in Chicago's in Grant Park is one of the largest in the world.
While in operation (from approximately April 1 to November 1), every hour on the hour for 20 minutes the Fountain produces a major water display and the center jet shoots 150 feet into the air. At dusk, the fountain's hourly major water display is accompanied by lights and music.
The Fountain's water capacity is 1.5 million gallons. Depending on wind conditions, major displays use approximately 14,100 gallons of water per minute conveyed through 134 jets. Water is re-circulated from the base pool after the basins are filled and not drawn from the outside except to replace losses from wind and evaporation.
Natives and visitors alike flock to this iconic city landmark to enjoy the show and to admire the phenomenal architecture. Not mention, admission is always free.
