Ozark Stream and Fountain Schedule at Jordan Valley Park

The Ozark Stream and Fountain at downtown Springfield's Jordan Valley Park is now operational and running on a regular schedule.

The popular downtown attraction was designed to emulate a meandering Ozarks stream, complete with small waterfalls, ripples and a portion which disappears and reappears. The stream ends in a jetted fountain and is a favorite place for kids of all ages to splash and play.

The fountain show times are scheduled daily:

Please note, this schedule is subject to change due to fountain maintenance, park rentals or community events.

"We schedule preventative maintenance early in the mornings, so we don't interrupt families enjoying the fountain," said Jeff Cumley, Jordan Valley Park Manager. "The fountain is controlled by extremely delicate and complicated equipment and it's our goal to keep it all running for everyone to enjoy."
