Buckingham Fountain is located in Grant Park. It was built in 1927 with a donation of $500,000 from Kate Buckingham. It was made to look like the fountain in Versailles, France, only is twice as big. It is one of the largest lighted fountains in the world. The fountain plays from June to October. It shoots water 135 feet into the air, or as tall as a 12 story building. The dancing waters are orchestrated by a computer in Atlanta, Georgia.
