Elliott Tower Fountain At Oakland University
The Elliott Tower Fountain is FREE and is a series of pop-jets that are programmed in a variety of patterns that create a fun and exciting splash pad for children to cool off during the summer months.
Elliott Tower Fountain is located on the Oakland University campus in Rochester, Mi. The exact address of the tower is 578 Pioneer Drive, but if you are on campus, you will see the tower. You can’t miss it. The fountain operates 8a – 7p, seven days a week.
We stopped by last year to enjoy the fountains and the carillon concert. Uh, what’s a carillon? A carillon is a set of bells in a tower, played using a keyboard. Yes, it was as cool as it sounds. Yes, we are going back. YES, you should come too.
The concerts will run Friday evenings through July 6th through August 10th, 2018 starting at 6 pm and feature musicians from across the globe.
Bring your lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy a relaxing evening listening to the sounds of the carillon’s 49 fully-chromatic bells. Come early to enjoy the fountains on a hot summer evening!
Watch our video from Facebook Live. Don’t mind me when I say the carillon concert was a computer.. it is a live concert.
There is plenty of shaded seating, so you could grab food to go, or pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the summer evening with live music and the kids can have fun in the fountain.
