A new water fountain has opened at Klyde Warren Park. Fox 4 says you can find the new fountain at Klyde Warren Park on the side of the park between Pearl and Olive streets. The new fountain is expected to draw in families.

The fountain covers 5,000 square feet and includes a splash pad area that's big enough for hundreds of kids to play on. Right after sunset, the water in the fountain will move to a choreographed light and music show. The music will change each month. Fox 4 reports that the fountains will be named after Klyde Warren Park board member Nancy Best, who donated $10 million for the construction of the fountains.

Kit Sawers, president of Klyde Warren Park told Fox 4:

"It’s been years in the planning. When the deck for Klyde Warren Park was built, it actually was built to accommodate a fountain. Ten years later, we’ve got the design we wanted and thanks to a generous gift from Nancy and Randy Best we’ve designed this beautiful fountain that has three trees in the middle of it surrounded by little bubblers that are similar to rose buds and leaves. We just have this incredible majestic site for the city to enjoy," Sawers said.

Fox 4 reports that the water is recycled and goes through multiple filtration processes and will be checked regularly for safety. The new water fountain and splash pad are now open in Downtown Dallas. This is the latest addition to Klyde Warren Park, after Fletcher's Corny Dogs announced their permanent location at the park.
