Please Note: The City of Colorado Springs owns and staffs the Uncle Wilber Fountain, and occasionally experiences staff shortages that affect their ability to keep the Fountain open. This is particularly true during the last weeks of the summer. Unexpected maintenance issues and weather can also cause the Fountain to close temporarily. For questions regarding Fountain closures, please contact Deb Barry of the Colorado Springs Parks & Rec Aquatics division at 385-6035.

The Uncle Wilber Fountain is located in downtown Colorado Springs' Acacia Park at the corner of Bijou and Tejon streets. There is no fee for enjoying the fountain, but donations are accepted.

Notice to Uncle Wilber patrons: please park in the city garage on the corner of bijou and cascade. It's only one block away and the rates are the same as the parking meters. Parking in the city garage helps the downtown merchants by freeing much needed parking for shoppers. And access to Uncle Wilber is safer since you don't have to cross three lanes of traffic. You can relax and enjoy the fountain since you can park in the shade of the garage for as long as you like and not worry about your meter! Uncle Wilber and the downtown merchants appreciate your efforts and thank you for your cooperation!
