Walden Drive to Carmelita Avenue. A gift to the City of Beverly Hills from Harold Lloyd’s mother, with installation funding from the Women’s Club of Beverly Hills, the Electric Fountain stands in recognition of long-standing community philanthropy. It also serves as the centerpiece of one of the region’s most conspicuous intersections, at Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards. Highly innovative for its time in 1931, it featured an 8-minute water show with jets timed to colored lights. Homage is paid to the local Tongva Native American tribe with the Robert Merrell Gage sculpture crowning the fountain. The fountain is complemented by a Mediterranean and early Modern California planting palette along this stretch of the park. The seating area in this garden features three metal benches.

This block needs your support to provide significant rehabilitation
and restore Beverly Hills history.
