In the heart of Arvada, the Olde Town Water Fountain is the hub for community and relief from the summer heat. Families walk to the fountain from a few blocks away, swimsuits on, to bring their little ones to splash in the water spouts. Arvada native Kristen loves coming to the fountain to, “give the kids an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.”
28-year-old Josh moved to Denver recently and visits the fountain nearly every week for the Arvada Farmers Market. It occurs every Sunday at 9:00 AM. Local businesses circle the fountain with stands selling fresh mushrooms, flowers, mochi, baked goods, and so much more. Josh comments, “It’s great to check out the fountain while it’s open and support some small businesses.”
The Olde Town Square where the fountain is located is always bustling. Stop by to admire the charming architecture and small-town feel, or take a minute to meet someone new.
The fountain is open until September 30th, seven days a week. It pauses at certain times during the day. The current hours are: 9:00-11:00 AM, 12:00-2:00 PM, 4:00-6:00 PM, and 8:00-10:00 PM. When you’re looking for a new summer activity, check out the Olde Town Water Fountain at 5700 Olde Wadsworth Boulevard in Arvada.
