  • We live in Grand Haven and for some reason don't visit some of the beautiful places right here in town enough. We'll go once in awhile and every time we do, we wonder why we don't do it more often. Do...  more »
  • They have 5 different songs each night. It is quite interesting and free. You can sit on grand stands, grass, just park your car, or walk around.  more »
  • The show was good. Wish I would have known the songs more, but still good. Take a jacket for the evening with the sun goes down and the wind is blowing on the water. Beautiful view of the water/boats....  more »

  • Fun but doesn't start until little after 10pm. Makes for a long night with younger just trying to get to 10pm. Music was average, fountain was cool but after five minutes not much changes other than the music.
  • Went for Disney night. It was a nice setting with the bleachers to sit on. Kids loved it!
  • Great night of listening to music with the flow of water. The show was great. It was campy fun.
  • It's a perfect place to bring that special someone. Grab a blanket, walk the pier, watch the sunset, and then walk back to the fountain to top off your evening!
  • Perfect way to end the day. Great fountain shows with themed music and community atmosphere.
