In February of 2009 the reflecting pool at the historic Esplanade at Fair Park began a $12 million renovation. Fair Park is recognized as a significant example of Art Deco architecture and is the largest Art Deco site in the US. The City of Dallas sought to restore the famous Art Deco design while modernizing the original fountain using new technology that would allow for programmable fountain shows that could be coordinated with lights and music. The main pool is 700’ long by 60’ wide. Inspired by the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas, Esplanade includes 172 nozzles and hundreds of lights all programmable to music allowing limitless creativity for programmed performances throughout the year. The mechanical room for this feature is 80’ long by 25’ wide, houses twenty-two 50 HP pumps, four 20 HP pumps, and one 10 HP pump. All control equipment and treatment equipment is located in the mechanical room which is centered below the fountain basin.
