Kohl Kaplan Fountain


About the Fountain

A chorus of water, lights, and music, the glorious Kohl Kaplan Fountain welcomes Ravinia visitors at the main entrance to the park and engages them in the “Ravinia experience” from the moment of arrival. The fountain is nestled along the path of the popular Green Bay Trail, giving Ravinia the opportunity to not only offer the public a place to pause and feel present even when the park is closed, but also share musical interludes with those who use the trail. Created by WET Designs, the engineers behind installations at Lincoln Center, Water Tower Place, Navy Pier, the Bellagio, and around the world, the Kohl Kaplan Fountain was unveiled at Ravinia in 2016.

Ravinia thanks Dolores Kohl Kaplan and the late Morris Kaplan for their vision and generosity, which brought this fountain to life.
