Drumheller Fountain, also known as the Frosh Pond since the early 1900s, is an outdoor fountain on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, Washington, in the United States.[1] The fountain was given its name is 1961 to honor the University Regent Joseph Drumheller, who gifted the actual fountain to the University for its centennial celebration.[2]

Drumheller Fountain is predated by a pond similar in design and location known as Geyser Basin, which was built for the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition. While the design and location are similar, Geyser Basin was a separate, distinct structure from the current-day Drumheller Fountain.[3]
