"James Scott Memorial Fountain"

A masterpiece by artists Cass Gilbert and Herbert Adams, James Scott Memorial Fountain is a magnificent fountain located at the western tip of the Belle Isle. James Scott was an infamous businessman who wished to be commemorated after his death, he left a sizable amount to finance a fountain and the result was simply awe-inspiring. The fountain bowl is as wide as 500 feet (152 meter) and it has eight smaller pools. Bas reliefs celebrating the city of Detroit can be see on a pedestal that holds another larger bowl. Water jets fire from all angles with the highest one reaching more than 120 feet (63.5 meter). A spectacular sight in itself, one simply cannot miss the James Scott Memorial Fountain when touring the city.
