Video: Musical Fountain on Margaret Island is Back
This spectacular fountain's repertoire has been refreshed this year, and it's well worth a look, especially after dark. Every day, starting at 11am popular pieces are played every hour until 10 pm, with a 'Kid's Section' at 11am & 4pm.


This outstanding fountain on Margaret Island is considered to be one of the largest in Europe.

It jets water up to 10 meters high, in the evenings 250 energy saving LEDs provide moodlighting around the 35 meter diameter pool -  containing 400 cubic meters of water, and a more than 1000 square meters water surface.
