A fountain square is a park or plaza in a city that features a fountain. A fountain square is similar to a town square but is usually smaller and not situated in front of the town hall or county courthouse. It may stand alone or as part of a larger public park.
In the United States, there are numerous fountain squares, many of which are actually called "fountain square." There are fountain squares in places such as Indianapolis, Indiana; Evanston, Illinois; and Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Fountain Square in Cincinnati, Ohio has continued to be a popular tourist attraction for more than 100 years; its famous Tyler Davidson Fountain is shown in the opening credits of the TV series WKRP in Cincinnati.
