William Mulholland Memorial Fountain

Saves: 18
Check-ins: 40
A gorgeous, refreshing fountain in Griffith Park cascades with over 2,000 gallons of water, a fitting tribute to the "Father of the Los Angeles Water System." Bill Mulholland, an engineer, was responsible for the 233-mile-long L.A. aqueduct, completed in 1913. The fountain was dedicated in 1940, five years after the death of Mulholland. It includes a beautiful garden and fountain with a ring sculpture that is part of the original aqueduct. At night you can see the fountain lit up in pretty colors. It's a great reminder of the man who made today's L.A. possible. (Submitted by Paola Tapia)
