Rackham Fountain

Rackham Fountain

See you next spring! The Rackham Fountain has been winterized for the season, but guests can still stop for a photo op with our recently restored bronze statues.

The historic and famed Horace H. Rackham Memorial Fountain, located in the center of the Zoo, was built in 1939 and dedicated to the first president of the Zoological Commission.  The fountain features two 10-foot-tall bronze bears in a 75,000-gallon pool with life-sized sea lions, turtles and frogs and is one of the Zoo’s most-photographed attractions.
