Downtown Palm Springs Park

This RIOS-designed park establishes an urban oasis for this desert city through ambient shade and cooling strategies. A key element is its fountain, where a cliff-like scene is artfully emulated in cast concrete. An iconic waterfall serves as a backdrop to the inviting open space. The space is freely composed of occasional mists and intimately scaled jets, which are, in the evenings, internally illuminated in changing tinted hues. The veiled mists and low jets are specifically designed for the enjoyment of young families and children, though the fountain is open to be enjoyed by all.
