Aleman Court Fountain


Named after Mexican President Miguel Aleman who dedicated this fountain in 1947, this wall fountain is placed in a small, recessed, walled court in front of the Balcony Building on the Country Club Plaza. A white marble sculpture of a dolphin rests his head on a scalloped shell basin atop a fluted marble pedestal. The fountain is set within a niche featuring a shell motif. A single jet of water flows from the dolphin's mouth and is recycled from the reflecting pool in which the fountain sits.
