Fountain of the Sea Horses

Fairmount Park along the river basin is one of the loveliest walks to be found in an American city. Proceed to the Azalea Garden, directly behind the museum. In the spring when the bushes are blooming, the garden is a blaze of color and a place of pilgrimage for flower lovers. The large fountain set in the center of the circular drive nearby is the Italian Fountain, or the "Fountain of the Sea Horses," a replica of the one in the Borghese Gardens in Rome.
