Whirlpool Compass Fountain is the largest splash pad in Michigan, featuring water cannons that run every quarter of an hour and spray recycled water 10 m (35 ft) in the air. Nestled between the beach and the carousel, this popular fountain is an ideal place to cool off on a hot day. The fountain doesn't operate during the winter.

Great fountain - only a block walk from the beach. You can get all the sand off here on the way home from the beach! The fountains are fun.

Perfect attraction for young kids! I've taken my nephews here multiple times and I can hardly get them to leave when it's time to go. Great alternative for those who don't like the sand or the beach.
