America The Beautiful Park
City of Colorado Springs
This 35 foot diameter sculptural element produced by a local artist rotates at its base to provide a changing view of the city and Pikes Peak through it’s open port. Water is provided to the helix through a rotating hydraulic joint and provides a rain fall of water to the center of the sculpture. The water cascades down a nautilus shaped pool to terminate into a water chute and disappear into a subterranean cistern.
