As the fountains spring forth, they are synchronized with many LED lights, and the fountains dance with the music. While there why not stop for a Googie Burger? The food is made from scratch, never frozen and cooked to order. Another interesting thing to check out, are the 800,000 bricks laid in the park. Out of that, 486,000 bricks are engraved.
