Popp Fountain
Popp Fountain is a showstopper well-suited for special events. The magnificent, 60-foot-wide fountain was built in 1937 and recently underwent a significant restoration, rendering the fountain area and adjacent brick patio into an ideal setting for wedding ceremonies and cocktail parties. The fountain features underwater lighting and a dramatic 30-foot spray of water from a cast bronze sculpture of leaping dolphins designed by artist Enrique Alferez. Wide upper and lower promenades encircle the fountain, which is bordered by a colonnade of 26 Corinthian columns draped in wisteria and surrounded 12 acres of grounds landscaped with native trees, shrubs, and flora.
