Fountains As Pleasurable Entertainment

Wednesday, October 31, 2012
The overall beauty and novelty of a water fountain is that it can be located just about anywhere, take on any form and, by the way the water is engineered to be released, can be a constant source of entertainment or pleasure.

Water fountains are found at various locations such as parks, royal estates, shopping centers, city squares and even private homes. From the times of royal nobles to our current era, fountains have been known to please, rejuvenate the soul and cause a spectacle like that of no other object. After all, who can resist the calming waters peacefully trickling down, beckoning its viewers to slow down and appreciate the stillness of one’s very being. Who would not be joyfully entertained by fountains that are designed to shoot water from across its structure only to have the other side shoot water back?

Over the centuries various artists, architects and engineers have collaborated in creating inventive fountains whose waters not only shoot from afar but also sing, dance, drench and cause an explosive sigh to be released from within. From the past you can marvel at such wonders as the fountains found a Peterhof Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia where water creations ranged from benches that squirt when sat upon as well as marvelous towering eruptions. Currently, many novelty fountains can be found in places such as Las Vegas where in front of the Bellagio Hotel runs hourly water shows where the water is coordinated to dance to the music in the background. The whole entryway to the hotel is like a giant water fountain with the hotel almost as its centerpiece.

Fountains Found In Private Homes

Water fountains found in private homes are wonderful expressions of art and the personality of the people who reside within. Some fountains in private homes are found in the backyard and located centrally to bring out the overall theme of a garden. Located next to a designated seating area, water fountains make wonderful background noise as you entertain your family and guests. Other fountains found at private homes are located in the very front of the house. While some prefer centerpiece fountains in a rotunda, others choose to place their fountain next to the front door as a sort of welcome to arriving guests. Either way, fountains found at private homes are always a source of pleasure and entertainment as they transport people to a calm place where they can either forget the troubles of the day or relive the joys they experienced. Common fountains found at homes are two or three tiered styles where basins go from small to large downward and water trickles calmly. Fountains made of a particular statue are also commonly used, as are geometric shapes to gain a more modern feel.

A Special Treat

Whether you are relaxing or having lunch at a near by fountain located at a local park, or enjoying a thunderous falling of water from an amusement park spectacle, water fountains never fail to be a source of pleasure and entertainment. Water fountains are always considered a special treat.
