Splash fountains, also known as bathing fountains, are a type of fountain often found in urban public spaces. They are designed to be easily accessible to encourage interaction in terms of children being able to play and people being able to cool off on hot days.

Ground-level nozzles or high level showers spray water into the play area, sometimes controlled by timers or motion sensors.
