Elliott Tower Fountain At Oakland University Visitor’s Guide and Photos

 The Elliott Tower Fountain is FREE. It is a series of pop-jets that are programmed in a variety of patterns. This creates a fun as well as an 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. However, 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.

2020 Summer Carillon Concerts at Oakland University

The concerts will run Friday evenings July 10th through August 14th, 2020. Starting at 6 pm and feature musicians from across the globe.

Bring either your lawn chairs or blankets. Then, enjoy a relaxing evening listening to the sounds of the carillon’s 49 fully-chromatic bells. And certainly, 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. Enjoy the summer evening with live music while the kids can have fun in the fountain.
